Finalists come from 9 countries.

(Press Release) Young jewelry designers will be arriving in Italy from all over the world thanks to the efforts of Italian Exhibition Group, the trade show company created by the merger of Rimini Fiera and Fiera di Vicenza. In fact, the names of the 22 finalists of the international Next Generation – Jewellery Talent Contest specifically for under-30 talents have been announced, and their creations will be on display at an exhibition dedicated to “Jewellery and Function,” the theme of the 2017 competition, which will open in Vicenza during the next VICENZAORO September, scheduled Sept. 23-27.

The works of these future jewelry industry talents will be hosted inside the Basilica Palladiana in Vicenza at the Museo del Gioiello, the jewelry museum under the directorship of Alba Cappellieri, professor of jewelry design at Milan Polytechnic and Italy’s leading scholar within the sector.

The three winners from among the 22 finalists will be announced and awarded at the museum Sept. 22.

The finalists were selected by a jury and come from nine countries: France, Italy, Argentina, Germany, Mexico, South Africa, China, Israel and Norway.

The contest, now in its sixth edition and promoted by IEG in collaboration with the Milan Polytechnic’s School of Design, is a scouting tool for enhancing and promoting up-and-coming creative talent on the international jewelry scene. Project designs presented have been subsequently produced by jewelry companies associated with the Women Jewellery Association Italy and by some VICENZAORO exhibitors, such as Roberto Coin, Falcinelli Italy, FANCS V., De Simone and Eurocatene srl.

The Museo del Gioiello is the result of IEG’s commitment to promoting the cultural universe of Italian gold and jewelry, sectors in which the company is recognized as an international business hub with its VICENZAORO international show.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
