(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.”

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.”
