(PRESS RELEASE) The Jewelers Vigilance Committee announces its most recent digital resource for marketing and advertising in the jewelry industry – Understanding the FTC Guidelines. JVC created this book to decipher the complex laws and regulations that govern the manufacture, sale, and advertising of jewelry and help industry players develop their own compliant advertising and marketing practices.

The Federal Trade Commission writes the rules and tells our industry what is and isn’t considered deceptive advertising in their efforts to protect the U.S. consumer. Most of the rules for how to advertise jewelry changed recently. The lawyers at the JVC read all the fine print so you don’t have to. We are happy to present this easy to understand and fully up-to-date guide to advertising jewelry; it will be useful on a daily basis as you run your businesses. — Tiffany Stevens, JVC President, CEO & General Counsel

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
