(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

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.”
