Rebranded and Refreshed Jewelry Camp Returns to Newark Museum

It opens with a reception on July 26.




(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 | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
