“As a mutual company, our mission has continued for over 100 years to serve our members and the greater jewelry industry. The power situation in California is not only frustrating to our customers, it’s also potentially dangerous given the impact to electronic security for jewelers,” said John Fierst, Jewelers Mutual vice president of commercial lines.

Fierst explained that to ensure the safety of their customers, Jewelers Mutual has deployed security surveillance within the affected areas to monitor locations and avert criminal activity during the shutdown period.

“This devastating situation required immediate action because lives and livelihoods are at stake,” Fierst said. “Jewelers Mutual’s dedication and support to our jewelers and the industry has always extended beyond insurance and we will continue to do so for the next 100 years.”

Policyholders are encouraged to contact their agent with any questions regarding their policy or security.

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
