(PRESS RELEASE) The Antique Jewelry & Art Conference (Jewelry Camp), the leading resource for antique and estate jewelry learning, brings together jewelry professionals and collectors for in-depth learning and networking opportunities July 26-27, 2019, at the Newark Museum in Newark, NJ.

Jewelry Camp is more than a conference, more than a learning experience – it’s where the jewelry community converges to discover, share and grow together. The antique, estate and vintage jewelry world is about more than commerce and shiny objects – it’s also about the community behind it – online and offline. Jewelry Camp is now reimagined to stay current with the times, but more importantly, to be useful to its community.

Wilkerson Testimonials

A Liquidation Sale during a Pandemic? Wilkerson Showed Them the Way

For 25 years, Stafford Jewelers of Cincinnati, Ohio, was THE place to go for special gifts, engagement diamonds, high-end Swiss watch brands — in other words, the crème de la crème of fine jewelry. But this summer, the Stafford family was ready to retire. So, they chose Wilkerson to help them close up shop. “One of the biggest concerns was having the sale in the middle of COVID,” says Director of Stores Michelle Randle. Wilkerson gave the Stafford team plenty of ideas as well as safety guidelines, which they closely followed. “All of the employees felt safe, the customers coming in the door felt safe and we did a lot of business,” says Randle. How much business? “The inventory flew,” she says. Translation: They sold millions and millions of dollars-worth of merchandise. Randle calls it, “an incredible experience.” Would she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers who are thinking of thinning their inventories or retiring? “Everyone got more than what they expected out of the sale. You have to hire Wilkerson. They’re amazing.”
