(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK — Jewelers of America (JA), the national trade association for businesses serving the fine jewelry marketplace, has announced Bond, a personal security platform, as its newest Member Benefit Partner. Bond enables staff of jewelry companies access to a suite of fifteen personal security services for every situation, whether they are uneasy or in danger. Jewelers of America Members will receive a discount off monthly rates on the platform.

The Bond platform addresses the personal security gap that arises in situations when individuals do not feel safe, but the situation does not yet warrant a 911 call. The Bond platform combines innovative technologies with a critical human element in the form of 24/7 security agents. Security agents are available within seconds via an app whose range of services deliver peace of mind. Bond’s mission is to resolve uncomfortable situations before they escalate to the level that justifies a call to 911.

Among the services most important to jewelers is the Security Check. Bond members can schedule a recurring or one-time check-in from a Bond Security Agent. If a member is unable to respond – for instance, if they are in an unsafe situation – the Bond Security Agents immediately notifies the member’s emergency contact, and if needed, activates the authorities.
Bond will be presenting an informational webinar on Wednesday, March 3 as part of Jewelers of America’s Webinar Series. Registration is open here.

“Safety of our members is always a top priority. We know that the jewelry industry is servicing their clients in variety of different ways today. Bond gives our members, and their clients access to real time monitoring and personal security that can give them safety and peace of mind,” says JA President & CEO David J. Bonaparte.
The platform has more than 150,000 users and has handled nearly 50,000 cases, including providing lifesaving intervention. In addition to immediate access to the 24/7 Bond Personal Security Agents via the app, Bond offers a range of services that include monitoring members on the go or during encounters with strangers, sirens to alert of danger, and — if needed — agents to liaise with authorities and first responders.

“Bond is thrilled to partner with Jewelers of America to bring a first-of-its-kind personal security platform to jewelers across the country, their employees and their families,” says Bond CEO and Founder Doron Kempel.“ All of us routinely face situations wherein we are uncomfortable or even unsafe, and those in the jewelry industry are especially aware of this reality. Bond is a pioneering solution to the personal security gap – while 911 only works after emergencies happen, Bond works to prevent those emergencies. Bond is glad to be able to bring its full suite of services, including 24/7 Security Agents accessible via an app, to its partners at Jewelers of America — helping them and their families to be and feel safer, and protect what matters most.”

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
