“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.

Why This Fourth-Generation Jeweler Chose Wilkerson for a Very Special Sale

Parian & Sons of Franklin Lakes, NJ was founded in the early part of the 20th century. But even stores that have successfully made it through the Great Depression, a World War and the Woodstock Generation must come to an end. With no family wanting to continue the tradition, the time was right for Glenn Parian and his wife, Maria, to retire. And what better way to do so than by hiring Wilkerson to help with the store’s liquidation sale. As Glenn puts it, with his credit card machine humming to the tune of up to 200 transactions a day, he couldn’t have done it without Wilkerson. “This is what they do,” he says. “This is what they do for everybody.”
