(PRESS RELEASE) ROYAL OAK, MI – Roger Dery Gem Design has created grade-specific gem related games and activities to engage kids with learning about the gem and jewelry industry during the current COVID-19 quarantine. The resources are free and available to all members of the jewelry industry by visiting here.

The resources are oriented to be grade specific: Kindergarten-2nd Grade, 3rd-6th Grade, and 7th-12th Grade. In addition, a short “Careers in the Jewelry Industry” quiz allows kids to explore job opportunities in the gem and jewelry industry and learn more about each one. The goal of the quiz is to foster connection with local jewelers and create interest in their work.

Roger Dery is a precision colored gemstone faceter who is committed to giving back at the sources where he buys his gems and serving retail jewelers. During the current COVID-19 quarantine, he realized jewelers will be among those whose income will be severely impacted.

“My goal is for always for our industry to take care of others, whether that’s those at the source of our gems and metals, each other, or our clients,” said Roger Dery, president of Roger Dery Gem Design. “We want to provide you with resources to stay top of mind with your clients in a tasteful and authentic way that is sensitive of their current needs!”

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
