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.




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.”
