The Plumb Club overwhelmingly voted to require all new and existing members to become certified members of the RJC. This is an important milestone and reflects The Plumb Club’s vision of pioneering industry leadership to promote responsible practices.

The JCK Las Vegas Show provides the opportunity to further deepen the relationship between The Plumb Club and RJC – with a joint goal of working towards responsible business practices throughout the jewelry and watch supply chain.

“We are excited to have the Responsible Jewelry Council exhibit with us”, said Victor Weinman, chairman of The Plumb Club Pavilion. “Their presence in the pavilion enhances our commitment to the retailer for responsible sourcing and further underscores our vision to help shape the future of the jewelry industry. By having the RJC in our Pavilion we will provide the retailer the opportunity to better understand the future of RJC in the American jewelry marketplace”.

During the most recent general meeting of The Plumb Club, held on January 10 during the 24 Karat weekend in New York, RJC Executive Director, Iris Van der Veken spoke to the membership of The Plumb Club, congratulating the attendees on their commitment to the industry.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
