(PRESS RELEASE) ROYAL OAK, MI – Roger Dery of Roger Dery Gem Design, with his wife Ginger and daughter Rachel, has launched Gem Legacy, a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to education, vocational training, and local economies in East African mining communities.

“Gem Legacy is dedicated to what we’ve been doing in Africa for over 20 years,” said Roger Dery, President of Roger Dery Gem Design and Gem Legacy, Inc. “In our 57 combined trips to Africa, we have met thousands of people in East Africa’s remote villages and bush mines where gems have had a remarkable influence on their lives. Gems bring hope, make a difference, and leave a lasting change… a timeless legacy. It is time to raise up an army to support the husbands, wives, daughters, sons, brothers, sisters, granddaughters, and grandsons of gemstones.”

The organization has several initiatives, including Gem Faceting Training, Kitarini Primary School, and Gemological Training. 100% of every donation returns directly to the communities where gems are mined. For more information about Gem Legacy, Inc. or to donate, please email [email protected] or visit gemlegacy.org. To learn more, follow Gem Legacy on Instagram @thegemlegacy and on Facebook @thegemlegacy.

It’s Going to Set Us Up Very Nicely for Retirement

You’ve worked hard all your life. And if you’re like most jewelers contemplating retirement, you’re hoping that your going-out-of-business sale will add to your nest egg — with minimal complications. That’s exactly what Doug and Jacki Friedrich, fourth-generation owners of Friedrich Jewelers Inc., of Vernon, Conn., experienced when they selected Wilkerson to run their sale. “Jewelers who are contemplating a sale should go with Wilkerson because of their experience,” says Doug. And with financial goals “exceeding expectations,” the couple can now focus on enjoying the next chapter of their lives. “It’s going to set us up very nicely for retirement,” says Jacki. “The money’s coming in and we have no complaints. It’s been wonderful.”
