Hardrock Returning in Denver and More Service News for June

Rocking It In Denver

The Hardrock Summit will return to the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Sept. 15-18. The event will feature an estimated 250 exhibitors and host the American Gem Trade Association’s AGTA GemFair Denver and the Denver Gem and Mineral Show.

Let’s Be Responsible

The Platinum Guild International (PGI) has launched an information portal about responsible sourcing to help the jewelry trade and consumers learn about how platinum is sourced, abiding by industry-leading guidelines concerning environmental standards, social impact and governance practices.

Get Fancy

The International Gemological Institute (IGI) has added a cut grade to its reports for loose fancy shaped diamonds. In addition to traditional polish and symmetry analysis, IGI will now assess the influence of cut quality on light behavior seen in fancy shapes using a four-step system combining proportions requirements with visual assessment.


Paper’s Return

The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) is once again offering printed paper copies of their popular Diamond Dossier reports. The organization had previously announced its goal to make the reports digital-only starting at the beginning of 2023, but GIA has since reversed that decision due to concern from the industry.

Royal Selection

Royal Chain has launched its latest catalog. The Spring 2023 Collection offers a refreshing lineup of new styles sure to delight customers. Highlights include popular paperclip and curb chains now accented with colored gemstones, bold earrings designed for layering, expanded permanent jewelry options, and more.



When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
