“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.

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.”
