Baribault Jewelers latest jewelry store in ct to offer new insur-tech innovation for customer security.




(PRESS RELEASE) GLASTONBURY, CT — Beyond its beauty and sentimental value, jewelry is a financial investment that needs to be protected. Baribault Jewelers, a third-generation, family-owned, fine jewelry company in Glastonbury, today announced that it can now provide customers with instant insurance coverage through an innovative new app. The LUX Digital Vault mobile app, owned by Jewelers Mutual Group, is an insur-tech system that connects customers to their trusted jeweler and their jewelry and watch collections with an immediate 15-day jewelry insurance offer.

Innovative New App Puts Jewelry Protection in the Palm of Your Hand

“Using technology to bring everyone closer and enjoy their jewelry collections inside their phone is exactly what our next-gen clients are looking for,” said Christina Baribault Ortiz of Baribault Jewelers. “It is beyond cool to have a customer open their virtual vault inside our store, giving them peace of mind that they are secured and insured at the moment of purchase if they so choose, and if not, they have an innovative organized way to keep track of their jewelry digitally.”

Baribault notes that app users can communicate directly with their jeweler, upload images of their entire jewelry collection, store-related receipts, appraisals and other important documents and keep everything visible in the palm of their hands– all through a seamless experience.

The LUX Digital Vault is the future for jewelers who want to connect with their customers in more meaningful ways using the tech tool as an added “digital gift” to enhance the retail store experience. The customizable, store-branded app is free for jewelers to offer and for their customers to use.

“Being in business for 75 years, we are constantly looking for creative opportunities to enhance the ultimate customer experience and are excited to offer this new platform as one of our latest reinventions,” concludes Baribault-Ortiz.

When There’s No Succession Plan, Call Wilkerson

Bob Wesley, owner of Robert C. Wesley Jewelers in Scottsdale, Ariz., was a third-generation jeweler. When it was time to enjoy life on the other side of the counter, he weighed his options. His lease was nearing renewal time and with no succession plan, he decided it was time to call Wilkerson. There was plenty of inventory to sell and at first, says Wesley, he thought he might try to manage a sale himself. But he’s glad he didn’t. “There’s no way I could have done this as well as Wilkerson,” he says. Wilkerson took responsibility for the entire event, with every detail — from advertising to accounting — done, dusted and managed by the Wilkerson team. “It’s the complete package,” he says of the Wilkerson method of helping jewelers to easily go on to the next phase of their lives. “There’s no way any retailer can duplicate what they’ve done.”
