Jewelers of America (JA), a national trade association, has announced several new and updated benefits to their list of services available to JA member companies. The benefits include competitive rates on business loans, web services and workers’ compensation coverage.

JA has partnered with Jewelry Asset Services (J.A.S.), a bank loan and inventory lending consulting company that specializes in the jewelry industry. JA members will receive competitive rates on J.A.S. financial services.

JA members will also receive discounts on web services and workers’ compensation coverage. The association has partnered with W.R. Cobb Online, a provider of marketing solutions for the jewelry industry, to obtain discounts for members including 15 percent off an e-commerce website and 10 percent off monthly hosting and service fees. JA members also have access to workers’ compensation coverage through Wasserman & Wexler d.b.a. IJB and affiliated agencies.

“Our priority is always to tailor the discounts and programs we offer to address the issues that keep jewelers up at night,” says JA President & CEO David J. Bonaparte. “These new benefits offer financial, e-commerce and insurance support – three areas that directly contribute to the success and longevity of jewelry businesses.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
