WJA Announces 2021 ‘March Is Me’ Month Campaign

The campaign is aligned with International Women’s Day.




(PRESS RELEASE) The Women’s Jewelry Association will once again encourage women to buy jewelry for themselves in Spring 2021, with its second annual “March is Me Month” promotional initiative. The campaign is specifically aligned with International Women’s Day on March 8, 2021, which celebrates women around the world. “March is Me Month,” however, will play out through the entire month of March.

Marketing assets, which are available for spring planning starting in December 2020, will allow participants to advertise, use email and social media, and incorporate website and in-case signage to align with the national campaign. The association invites retailers, designers, suppliers, manufacturers, and trade associations to share its messaging.

The March is Me Month initiative was developed by the WJA Women’s Executive Leadership Forum, a group of high-level female executives in the jewelry, gem, and watch industries. The group has been working to build partnerships across the industry, as it prepares for the future of jewelry retail and the increased purchasing power of the female consumer.

“Our campaign is all about women giving themselves permission to purchase jewelry for themselves – they deserve it!” says WJA President Jacqueline Cassaway.

For 2021, WJA is offering March is Me Month assets to all its members – not just corporate members. “We had so many requests from the general membership to use the marketing assets during our first year, as they recognized the value of the campaign,” says WJA Executive Director Jennifer Markas. “As a result, all materials are available this year to individual members for a minimal fee.” WJA corporate members will once again receive the assets free of charge as a benefit of corporate membership.

All participants will have the flexibility to promote and sell their own products as part of the campaign. WJA encourages users to utilize the branding, taglines, and logos developed for the campaign by Richline Group, a wholly owned subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway. The campaign’s hashtags include #MarchIsMeMonth #CelebrateYou, #LiveBeautifully, and #WomensJewelryAssociation.

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.
