Diamond Hide and Seek

Gemological Science International (GSI) is now offering a new screening and detection service to discover natural diamonds hidden in lab-grown diamond jewelry. The new service is GSI’s answer to the lab’s recent discovery of an emerging pattern of “undisclosed” natural diamond melee mixed with lab-grown diamonds in jewelry.

Podium, the leading communication and payments platform for local businesses, is now offering Podium Card Readers. These point-of-sale connected devices are the company’s first physical product and offer even more ways for local businesses to collect and manage their payments.

Standout Scholarship

The Lonia Tate Scholarship, sponsored by Ben Bridge Jeweler, offers $10,000 toward the GIA Graduate Gemology Program (distance learning only) for a minority candidate interested in pursuing a fine jewelry career. The scholarship’s namesake, Lonia Tate, was a longtime Ben Bridge employee with a passion for community service.


A Responsible Future

Wilkerson Testimonials

Is It Your Time to Enjoy Life? Wilkerson Can Get You There.

Mary and Tim Whalen, owners of Crown Jewelers in Pittsfield, Mass., wanted to enjoy life beyond their business. When they decided to retire and close shop, they asked Wilkerson to handle the sale. As long-time Wilkerson customers, Mary says she knew the company could manage all the details of the liquidation. It was also great to have “fresh eyes” on their business, says Mary, which “worked tremendously for us.” Today, the Whalens are beginning a new adventure but are quick to commend Wilkerson for helping them get there. “You have one chance to get it right,” she says about their retirement sale. “Do it right.”
