(PRESS RELEASE) Le Vian announces that it has won Industry Innovation of the Year award at the JNA Awards, which took place virtually on 27 October and was streamed live from Hong Kong.

Le Vian is the only American company to have been honored at the JNA Awards, and is both delighted and grateful at this enormous honor. Organized by Informa Markets, the prestigious JNA Awards recognize ‘innovation, excellence and achievement’ within the jewelry and gemstone industry. The world-leading jewelry retailer Chow Tai Fook Jewellery Group is one of the Headline Partners for the awards. Esteemed judges included former CEO of Platinum Guild International, James Courage, and senior advisor to GIA India, Nirupa Bhatt. Other honorees at the event included De Beers Group in the Sustainability category while Tracr was awarded for Digital Innovation.

Le Vian CEO Eddie LeVian says: “Le Vian is deeply invested in innovation. Le Vian TV’s entertaining online shopping shows, our Style Bar which allows customers to reserve pieces on the spot from our comprehensive virtual vault of thousands of one-off pieces, and our appointment-only virtual trunk shows demonstrate how we consistently incorporate state-of-the-art technology into our sales strategies. Our omnichannel migration during the pandemic has increased appointment show-up rates from 50/50 a decade ago to nearly 100% today, with buyers making purchases in almost 100% of cases. Meanwhile our retail partner Signet has made mention of Le Vian on investor calls when reviewing the success of their own digital transformation. We are committed to paving the path for the future. On behalf of the LeVian family, we are thrilled that as a company which has been making jewelry for centuries and which has withstood the test of time, we are being recognized for our enduring commitment to innovation.”

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
