Digital Talks, in collaboration with Federpreziosi Confcommercio, will also be featured at the September edition of VICENZAORO providing a cycle of 30-minute meetings with leading digital retail experts on integration between sales channels and the digital world. The meetings will also deal with practical cases linked to the world of jewellers and will provide tools that can be rapidly applied to retail.

To be more precise, themes ranging from the 4.0 jewellery store to how Italian jewellers are facing the digital side of jewellery market evolution as well as cyber crime and brand protection on the web, will be dealt with. Other topics will include how to re-launch the sales point through digital, jewellery communication in Instagram times and 4.0 retail with an overview of the so-called digital signage.

Digital Talks will take place on Sunday 23rd and Monday 24th September in the VO Square (Hall 6).


But the real new entry at the September edition of VICENZAORO is Gem Talks, in collaboration with IGI (Italian Gemmological Institute) and sponsored by Borsa dei Diamanti, Federpreziosi Confcommercio, Associazione Italiana Gemmologi and CIBJO. Gem Talks originate from the aim to offer every exhibitor and visitor at the Show a chance to learn more about the world of gems.

From the difference between jade and jadeite to the comeback of garnets, a group of gems known of since ancient times that have recently enjoyed a new boom in fashion and on the market thanks to the discovery of new deposits and further surprising colours.

And again, the synthetic diamond and the advantages of a transparent and virtuous market, sweet water pearl production, the latest ideas offered by the market and the history, traditions and symbolic meanings of the amethyst, one of the most luxurious gems.

These are just some of the current and interesting themes that will be dealt with in the short, 30-minute talks held by International sector experts on Sunday 23rd, Monday 24th and Tuesday 25th September in the Gem Talks area (Hall 3.1).

Wilkerson Testimonials

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
