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.

Thinking of Liquidating? Wilkerson’s Got You Covered

Bil Holehan, the manager of Julianna’s Fine Jewelry in Corte Madera, Calif., decided to go on to the next chapter of his life when the store’s owner and namesake told him she was set to retire. Before they left, Holehan says they decided to liquidate some of the store’s aging inventory. They chose Wilkerson for the sale. Why? “Friends had done their sales with Wilkerson and they were very satisfied,” says Holehan. He’d enthusiastically recommend Wilkerson to anyone looking to stage a liquidation or going-out-of-business sale. “There were no surprises,” he says. “They were very professional in their assessment of our store, what we could expect from the sale and they were very detailed in their projections. They were pretty much on the money.”
