(PRESS RELEASE) Instappraise, developer of an innovative and easy-to-use jewelry appraisal creation and management solution, announces a partnership with Picup Media, provider of jewelry photo retouching and maker of the GemLightbox jewelry photography tool.

Professional-grade pictures and videos for better appraisals

Professional appraisers are already taking photos during the appraisal process. Clear and detailed high-resolution jewelry photos can capture special hallmarks, reduce the incidence of fraud, protect the owners in the event they must file an insurance claim, and facilitate a replacement. Unfortunately, too many jewelry appraisers — or jewelry industry professionals who do appraisals — are taking subpar photos or lacking the appropriate number of photos to fully support appraisal documentation.

Introducing video technology into the appraisal world

To help support jewelry appraisers, Picup Media and Instappraise have made it easy for their users to capture studio-quality photos and 360-degree videos and attach them to their appraisals, which can both enhance a comprehensive digital jewelry appraisal and improve the overall customer experience. The result is ultimately a more professional, reliable, and credible appraisal while offering a more interactive experience to the customer.

This comprehensive solution returns control and peace of mind to customers through Instappraise’s Customer Portal: appraisers and retail jewelers can create login information for their customers, so they have the freedom to access their appraisal reports, photos and videos — even while they’re on the go.

Thanks to this partnership, jewelry industry professionals will be able to benefit from two productivity tools at once, gaining one comprehensive, powerhouse solution! Not only can users conduct fast, powerful, flexible, and precise appraisals thanks to Instappraise’s cloud-based platform, but they’ll also be able to upload studio-quality, detailed, white-background photos and videos with just one click, thanks to GemLightbox’s 360° capability. Users will benefit from increased productivity when creating appraisals and be able to offer their customers a secure access to their appraisal documents from any device, anytime, from anywhere.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
