(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 info@gemlegacy.org or visit gemlegacy.org. To learn more, follow Gem Legacy on Instagram @thegemlegacy and on Facebook @thegemlegacy.

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
