JUST IN CASE

Hasenfeld-Stein has created a new showcase display for retailers offering its FireCushion and FireMark diamonds. Retailer feedback at the 2016 LUXURY show led to the addition of magnetic elements that make daily setup and storage of the display a breeze. hasenfeld-stein.com


 

CONTEST WITH A KAY

Scott Kay and the Fashion Institute of Technology are partnering to launch a contest open to second-year jewelry design students. The challenge is to design a set of bridal jewelry that includes three pieces from a set of four — ring, bracelet, necklace and/or earrings. Entrants must develop and present drawings, measurement details, materials and color options using the brand’s original design codes. The winner will receive $3,000, a trip to Las Vegas for the JCK/LUXURY shows and the chance to negotiate a separate agreement with Scott Kay to produce and sell the winner’s design.  scottkay.com


NOW, EVEN MORE NEW

The JA New York Show’s New Designer Gallery will be expanded to both the spring and summer JA New York shows. Now in its 40th year, the New Designer Gallery is a venue for the best and brightest new designers who have never before exhibited in a fine jewelry show. ja-newyork.com

TRACKED MELEE

Stuller is partnering with Dominion Diamond to become the first supplier to bring CanadaMark melee diamonds to the U.S. market. Stuller has always offered melee diamonds, but with the introduction of the certified CanadaMark melee, customers will now have the option to choose ethically sourced melee diamonds that have been tracked from mining to polishing. stuller.com/ canadiandiamondsinfo


MEET YOUR MENTOR

The American Gem Society has announced the launch of a mentoring program, an extension of its Young Titleholders program. The program matches prospective mentees with mentors who have the appropriate experience to foster younger members’ growth and confidence. The program gives new members a way to increase their professional networks and work toward achieving their career goals. americangemsociety.org

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
