Webcams will therefore be switched on at 3 pm this afternoon to view “’Jewellery Industry Voices”, the first of four weekly appointments organized in partnership with CIBJO, a partner that Vicenzaoro has been collaborating with for over 10 years to promote sustainability and best practices in the jewelry industry. The debate will focus on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the mining sector, the communities connected to it and the supply chain that fuels the jewelry industry from both an economic and social point of view. Speaking will be Feriel Zerouki, Senior Vice President of International & Ethical Initiatives at De Beers Group; Peter Karakchiev, Head of the International Relations Department for ALROSA; Estelle Levin-Nally, Founder of Levin Sources.

The three encounters with Trendvision Jewellery + Forecasting will, instead, be transmitted on a monthly basis until July next and will be taking a look at the future. Monday, 25th May at 2 pm, Trendvision’s publication The Jewellery Trendbook 2021+, a bona fide bible that previews all the sector trends ahead of time, will present a focus on emerging consumer trends with particular attention on the Asian markets. June 8th will provide a preview of THE JEWELLERY TRENDBOOK 2022 and exploring the long-term effects of the ongoing global health crisis and consumer values, while July 6th will deal with the concept of the “new normal” and how to redefine classic products.

Space will also be given to the thousand facets of stones on 28th May, 17th June and 15th July with a new series of Gem Talks, one of the most highly-appreciated formats at the more recent editions of Vicenzaoro which, thanks to the consolidated collaboration with IGI, manages to amaze by explaining the origins and peculiarities of both the more common and the more mysterious gems.

Further information on the webinar calendar and how to take part is available on www.vicenzaoro.com and by subscribing to the Vicenzaoro newsletter.

Lastly, the coming weeks will see a continuation of “Tuesdays at the Jewellery Museum”, encounters with the curators of the original layout at Italy’s first museum specifically dedicated to jewellery, established by Italian Exhibition Group and Vicenza Council inside the provincial capital’s Basilica Palladiana. Open to experts, students and enthusiasts, the on-line appointments cover the themes of the nine exhibition halls (symbol, magic, function, beauty, art, fashion, design, icon and future) with the Museum’s Director Alba Cappellieri and the international experts who created the layouts for the latest 2019-2020 biennial: the next appointment will be on 26th May with Massimo Vidale and the “Function” hall. Further details on www.museodelgioiello.it.

Vicenzaoro’s digital experience continues on the website and on the VO Facebook, Instagram and YouTube social platforms: all the contents and the recordings of the interactive workshop, congresses and seminars from the latest editions of the Show are available in order to re-experience the most significant international jewelry community’s moments of encounter, to prolong the debate and nurture discussion on the latest topics. From VISIO: NEXT SUMMIT, the round table of international experts that opens the show, to Digital and Gem Talks dedicated to digital innovation for jewelry and watch retailers and the world of stones, from CIBJO conferences on sustainability themes within the sector to Trendvision Talks on jewelry trends, together with VOVintage Talks, meetings with collectors and workshops with experts that featured at the first edition of IEG’s new event specifically designed for vintage watches and jewelry which, open to the public and enthusiasts, was inaugurated last January.

Wilkerson Testimonials

A Liquidation Sale during a Pandemic? Wilkerson Showed Them the Way

For 25 years, Stafford Jewelers of Cincinnati, Ohio, was THE place to go for special gifts, engagement diamonds, high-end Swiss watch brands — in other words, the crème de la crème of fine jewelry. But this summer, the Stafford family was ready to retire. So, they chose Wilkerson to help them close up shop. “One of the biggest concerns was having the sale in the middle of COVID,” says Director of Stores Michelle Randle. Wilkerson gave the Stafford team plenty of ideas as well as safety guidelines, which they closely followed. “All of the employees felt safe, the customers coming in the door felt safe and we did a lot of business,” says Randle. How much business? “The inventory flew,” she says. Translation: They sold millions and millions of dollars-worth of merchandise. Randle calls it, “an incredible experience.” Would she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers who are thinking of thinning their inventories or retiring? “Everyone got more than what they expected out of the sale. You have to hire Wilkerson. They’re amazing.”
