(PRESS RELEASE) Aleah Arundale, founder of industry group Jewelers Helping Jewelers, has created Jewelers Direct, a cooperative membership of American retail jewelers offering their best deals directly to the public.

The goal is to help JHJ’s independent brick-and-mortar retail members compete more effectively with large online sellers such as Blue Nile, Amazon and Overstock.com.

The group, barely 90 days old, is just shy of 6,000 members and has transacted nearly six figures.

By positioning itself within a group platform on Facebook, and augmenting its marketing through Instagram as well, Jewelers Direct is able to capture and deliver the latest tips and trends jewelry-savvy shoppers are looking for online. In addition, consumers can purchase with confidence, knowing there is a true brick-and-mortar store standing behind each sale.

Arundale said, “We’ve pulled together 100 leading retail jewelry stores in the United States who are working together to provide the public with their best deals. Consumers will feel confident in purchasing from Jewelers Direct, because every Jewelers Direct member has a physical store location and stands behind their products and services 100%. Jewelers Direct allows consumers to connect with industry experts who pride themselves on offering a great selection of merchandise for the best prices backed by unmatched customer service, in-store or online.”

To celebrate its launch, Jewelers Direct announced its “Silver Celebration Sweepstakes,” and will be giving consumers the chance to win a free piece of Tiffany estate jewelry every two weeks throughout the month of September.

With its soft launch complete and the sales and marketing program firmly underway, Arundale is opening the door to other retailers who might be interested in joining the platform. “The key to success for Jewelers Direct is similar to what has worked for JHJ. Our Jewelers Direct retail members are working together to support each other and the group. Those who are inviting their friends, or referring sales they might have otherwise lost to other members within the group are the ones that are seeing the strongest success. Jewelers Direct isn’t for everyone, but if you are a retailer who is looking for a way to recapture sales from the big box stores, do more business online and work with other jewelers who will actively support you, then Jewelers Direct is where you want to be.”

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.
