A highlight of the night was Emcee Nick Di Nieri interviewing 11-year-old Jayden, who last year had his wish to become an actor come to life. Jayden reminded the audience that sometimes we all have bad days, but we have good days too, and that is what his wish day was. JFC funds 15 wishes a year.

The event was made possible by 27 underwriters, jewelry industry donors who donated $35,000 or more.

Next year’s event will take place on June 8th in Las Vegas, and more info can be found at the JFC website, here. Options for all different levels of donations are available, including tribute ads and tickets to the event.


Jewelers for Children was founded in 1999 by the U.S. jewelry industry with the mission of enriching the lives of children. Since its inception, JFC has raised more than $61 million for programs enhancing the lives of children through our charity partners St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, Make-A-Wish America, and the National CASA Association. JFC also provides support to Make-A-Wish International and the Organization for Autism Research.



When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
