(PRESS RELEASE) While consumer preference to purchase from brands with transparent and responsible practices across all industries increases, Platinum Guild International USA is taking the step to provide jewelry manufacturers and retailers with the knowledge and insight to meet this demand. Launching this month is the organization’s latest e-blast series, “Platinum Beyond the Bench.” The program, in partnership with the World Platinum Investment Council, is focused on jewelry retailers, yet the educational information provided can also be used when working with consumer clients. The series will connect readers closer to the metal, allowing for better understanding of how precious the material is, and how valued it is in myriad industries beyond jewelry.

A recent edition of the multi-series content focuses on platinum bullion products, specifically Platinum Eagles, the U.S. Mint’s official platinum bullion coins. Future editions will cover advancements in fuel cell technology, healthcare and investing in platinum, among various other topics.

When asked about the timing of the new initiative, Jill Moynihan Helsel, PGI-USA’s marketing director, said, “Now, more than ever, the jewelry public needs authentic, transparent and organic content to consume.” She continued, “Consumers want to be in the know and these easily-digestible snippets around platinum are educational and informative, and are easily integrated into conversations sales associates have with their clients.”

Jenny Luker, PGI-USA’s president, said, “We are continuously looking for ways to further develop the platinum conversation, both with our retailers and in turn, to the end consumer.” She said, “By offering platinum facts and information on a macro level, outside of jewelry, it provides retailers with additional insight into the metal’s alternative uses, shines a light on platinum’s value and provides a broader context for appreciating the most precious of metals.”

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
