The Jewelry Symposium Secures Venue

Launching new event to be held in Minneapolis, MN, May 14-16.




(PRESS RELEASE) MINNEAPOLIS, MN — The Jewelry Symposium, Inc. has secured a venue for its inaugural event, to be held in Minneapolis, MN, May 14-16 at the Hyatt Centric Downtown Minneapolis, 615 Second Ave South.

Positive Jewelry Industry Impact

Many long-time attendees of the recently retired Santa Fe Symposium on Jewelry Manufacturing Technology (SFS) have expressed dismay at the end of this annual industry event, claiming that the SFS was the most helpful event in the industry for any entity involved in design, manufacturing, or marketing of jewelry. The new annual Jewelry Symposium for the Advancement of Manufacturing Technology will fill the gap left by the SFS in hosting original research papers in both live presentation and a published journal available at the event.

Call for Papers and Sponsors

“We currently have a good number of abstracts for next year’s event, but can use a few more!”, says Linus Drogs, chairman of the Jewelry Symposium Board of Directors. To submit an abstract or consider a sponsorship, visit here.




Time for More “Me Time”? Time to Call Wilkerson

Rick White, owner of White’s & Co. Jewelry in Rogers, Ark., knew it was time to retire. Since the age of 18, jewelry had been his life. Now it was time to get that “me time” every retailer dreams about. So, he chose Wilkerson to manage his going-out-of-business sale. White says he’d done plenty of sales on his own, but this was different. “Wilkerson has been a very, very good experience. I’ve had the best salespeople in the history of jewelry,” he says. “I recommend Wilkerson because they are really the icon of the jewelry business and going-out-of-business sales. They’ve been doing it for decades. I just think they’re the best.”
