(PRESS RELEASE) A private-label jewelry care product line from The Kingswood Company was awarded a Gold 2023 Editors’ Pick Award in the Cleaning Category from Store Brands magazine. Store Brands announced winners of its Editors’ Picks in its August issue.

The winning product line was developed in 2021 and launched in 2022 in over 2000 stores throughout North America. It is a consumer-focused jewelry care line with an elevated, on-trend aesthetic. Each of the line’s products was meticulously designed and created to meet unique jewelry cleaning needs of an entire collection of jewelry both at home and on the go. The award-winning line’s fresh look was designed with inspiration
from high-end luxury and cosmetic products, differentiating it from other jewelry care products in the market. Additionally, the packaging incorporates jewelry care and cleaning education, highlighting the products’ benefits and purpose. The company notes that it maintains customer confidentiality and therefore is not disclosing the winning brand’s name.

“We are proud to partner with our customers to design beautiful product lines that marry our outstanding jewelry cleaning formulas with packaging that highlights the customer’s brand and its luxury nature,” said Pam Waclawski, vice president of Sales and Marketing. “We are also unique in our attention to jewelry care education, which helped this brand become award winning.”

Store Brands notes that the last two years have seen a period of strong growth across the private-label industry. Retailers seek to offer their customers products that are differentiated from national brands, offering both higher value and higher quality.

Headquartered in Columbus, Ohio since 1956, The Kingswood Company is the world’s leading manufacturer of high-quality jewelry care products, serving thousands of retailers, designers and manufacturers worldwide. Kingswood was recognized with inclusion on the Inc. 5000 list of the nation’s fastest growing companies in 2020, 2021, 2022.




When There’s No Succession Plan, Call Wilkerson

Bob Wesley, owner of Robert C. Wesley Jewelers in Scottsdale, Ariz., was a third-generation jeweler. When it was time to enjoy life on the other side of the counter, he weighed his options. His lease was nearing renewal time and with no succession plan, he decided it was time to call Wilkerson. There was plenty of inventory to sell and at first, says Wesley, he thought he might try to manage a sale himself. But he’s glad he didn’t. “There’s no way I could have done this as well as Wilkerson,” he says. Wilkerson took responsibility for the entire event, with every detail — from advertising to accounting — done, dusted and managed by the Wilkerson team. “It’s the complete package,” he says of the Wilkerson method of helping jewelers to easily go on to the next phase of their lives. “There’s no way any retailer can duplicate what they’ve done.”
