It will be held May 21-24.

(Press Release) Registration is now open for the 2017 Santa Fe Symposium, which will be held May 21–24 in Albuquerque, NM.

“There is one reason I attend the Santa Fe Symposium year after year without fail: I learn more there than I do through the rest of the year,” said Eddie Bell, one of the founders of the Symposium.

At its inception 31 years ago, the Santa Fe Symposium brought forth a notion that professionals across the global jewelry market could, and should, collaborate on their business practices and their thoughts about the future. Over three decades later, the Santa Fe Symposium is highly regarded as the premier conference to learn about new industry developments. Non-commercial and uncompetitive, the Santa Fe Symposium focuses on asking questions, opening peer-to-peer discussions and widening professional networks within the jewelry market.

There are 24 speakers planned for the 2017 Symposium, and presentation topics will include discussions on laser printing, improving the hardness of fine gold, fanning the creative spark, business growth and much more.

“The Symposium is all about the science of making jewelry and, for me, it is a lot more than that,” said Gary Dawson, professional designer/goldsmith and six-time presenter at the Santa Fe Symposium. “It is the opportunity to meet people who are every bit as passionate about making jewelry as I am and to share and absorb that passion during every waking moment.”

Register before March 31 to reserve your spot with early-registration pricing. Scholarships are available for a few qualified applicants. Group registration (two or more people from your business) offers further discounts. Seating is limited.

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.
