(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!”

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
