(PRESS RELEASE) HONG KONG — In response to the need of a global platform where innovative minds and exceptional leaderships can share achievements and success in the international jewellery and gemstone industry, the JNA Awards will take on a new positioning starting 2021, as Jewellery World Awards (JWA). The new name also reflects how the awards programme has grown in stature, esteem, scope and scale since its inception in 2012.

After almost a decade of focusing on the accomplishments within the Asia region, the Awards continues to expand globally. The new identity enables JWA to welcome more entrants from different segments of the trade and from all parts of the globe. The move also aims to meet the needs of members of the global jewellery community, share their insights and celebrate their achievements in a more fitting manner.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
