(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK – Platinum Guild International is announcing the debut of an e-commerce platform to assist holiday shoppers with their platinum jewelry gifting needs this year. The pop-up’s initial offerings consist of a 19-piece collection, designed exclusively by New York-based platinum jeweler Michael Bondanza, comprised of earrings, pendants and stackable bands. With retail prices ranging from $1,100 to $4,400, the collection will be available on PlatinumJewelry.com through Valentine’s Day.

“We at Michael Bondanza are excited to partner with PGI USA on this e-commerce platform, as we have been passionate about platinum for decades,” shared Geri Bondanza, the brand’s owner. “Through this pop-up, we will ‘hear’ from today’s consumers about what they are wearing and collecting, thus establishing those Bondanza-created wearable pieces destined to become classics!”

“With so much holiday shopping done online, we felt it made great sense to create a destination which will enable shoppers to purchase platinum jewelry with ease,” shared PGI-USA’s president, Jenny Luker. “Whether a gift for a loved one or a self purchase, this pop-up is a one stop ‘shop’ where consumers will find a collection of truly wearable, stylish platinum pieces that everyone should have in their jewelry wardrobe.”

Based on the presumed success of the holiday endeavor, Platinum Guild will look to add additional designers to the pop-up in 2020. “The intent of this platform is to give designers an opportunity to share their platinum pieces directly with consumers, whom we know are interested in purchasing online,” explained Luker. By creating a destination that will showcase the best of platinum jewelry, in a range of design and price, we are assuring the continued growth and demand for years to come.”

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
