(PRESS RELEASE) Jewelers for Children will hold the 21st Annual Facets of Hope event on Sunday, June 2, 2019 at the Venetian Las Vegas, in Las Vegas, NV, during the jewelry market week.  The 2019 edition will mark a return to the Venetian Las Vegas, along with the move of the JCK Show to the Sands Expo Center. Judy Fisher, senior vice president of merchandising for Reeds Jewelers and David Bonaparte, president and CEO of Jewelers of America, Inc. have agreed to serve as honorees.

The event will celebrate the success of JFC’s fund raising efforts for the year and commitments to the charity partners will be announced.  In 2018, nearly 1,650 industry guests attended during the event.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
