(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.”

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.”
