(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.”

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.
