Jewelers have suffered property damage and loss of income.

(Press Release) Jewelers of America, the Diamond Council of America and National Jeweler have expanded the Hurricane Harvey Jewelers Relief GoFundMe page to collect donations for independent jewelers who are hardest hit by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma and other natural disasters. They are asking the jewelry community to band together and help fellow jewelers in their recovery efforts.

Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma have left many independent businesses affected not only by damage, but by loss of income from closures.

Jewelers of America stated: “We are hoping to join with other trade organizations as well as the entire jewelry community to help fellow jewelers in their recovery efforts. We believe that by coming together to support one fund, we can maximize the industry’s resources to support our own in their greatest times of need.”

WHO: All funds raised will be dispersed directly to independent jewelry stores who are members of DCA, JA or partner organizations. Business owners interested in receiving support from the Jewelers Disaster Relief Fund should click to submit their details.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
