(Press Release) NEENAH, WI – The Holojem platform, which uses a holographic rendering and interactive platform to create a 3D augmented reality experience for the customer, is now available to jewelry retailers.

“The Holojem platform was developed as a cutting-edge solution to attract shoppers who crave innovation, creativity and desire to co-create,” said Mark Devereaux, vice president of sales at Jewelers Mutual. “Delivering a jewelry shopping experience that modernizes the way consumers purchase is critical to building the industry’s success for the future.”

After winning the 2016 JCK Think Tank award for best emerging technology, Jewelers Mutual Group is bringing the platform back to JCK this year.

“How do retailers attract millennial customers? Always be helping, not closing. This may not be new advice, but it’s becoming essential as younger shoppers, new technology and the desire to spend on high-end experiences reshape the jewelry industry. This is perfect for jewelers who want a truly immersive shopping experience for their customers,” Devereaux said.

The augmented reality platform is a self-contained unit used to display, educate and share custom designs through its proprietary rendering system. It allows customers to interact with three-dimensional images. Its highlights include:

  • 4Cs Education Module – Exact visual representations of diamonds are magnified 300 times to illuminate their cut, color, clarity and carat. Customers are able to compare in real time using the interactive display.
  • Interactive Create and Share – Customers can view designs they create with jewelers anywhere from their mobile device, and share socially with friends using a portable mobile pyramid.
  • Cloud Storage – All custom jewelry designs are securely stored in a proprietary cloud storage platform and can be shared over the internet or viewed again when the customer returns to the jewelry store.

“The Holojem platform was created to allow jewelers to have more engaging interactions with their customers, and possibly prevent them from carrying excess inventory of raw materials. With the platform, a jeweler can make sure the co-created design matches what a customer had in mind before committing to the production of the piece,” Devereaux said.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
