The Plumb Club joins 14 other trade organizations.

(Press Release) The Plumb Club announced its membership in the U.S. Jewelry Council. The Plumb Club joins 14 other leading U.S. jewelry trade organizations to share and promote responsible business ethics and practices to maintain and enhance consumer confidence in the integrity and origins of jewelry in the U.S. market.

The Plumb Club’s acceptance into USJC is in step with its new strategic plan, which includes expanding its leadership role as the industry’s preeminent supply side organization. The Plumb Club seeks representation on the boards of select industry non-profits that advocate responsible sourcing and best business practices. As part of its strategy, The Plumb Club will require members to comply with responsible sourcing principles by either completing Responsible Jewellery Council certification or its own internal compliance requirements.

“In a time of great challenge, the USJC is the only Association whose members represent our major industry organizations. The Plumb Club is proud to be a member and we look forward to working with the USJC to further the needs of our industry,” said Victor Weinman, The Plumb Club Executive Committee and representative on the USJC Board.

“We’re thrilled to welcome The Plumb Club to the U.S. Jewelry Council and look forward to working together on the challenges facing our industry,” said Ronnie VanderLinden, USJC chair. “By combining their expertise, USJC members work together to address key issues, such as those of social, ethical and environmental importance that might impact consumer confidence in the U.S. jewelry industry. The Plumb Club will be a tremendous asset.”

Formed in 2015, the U.S. Jewelry Council consists of the leading jewelry trade organizations in the U.S., who have come together to present a collective voice on issues related to responsible and sustainable sourcing on the national and international levels.

Founded in 1983, The Plumb Club is a coalition of important suppliers spanning all facets of the jewelry, diamond and watch industries whose members account for a significant portion of the domestic fine jewelry market.

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.”
