“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 Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
