(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK – The Women’s Jewelry Association (WJA) hosted the inaugural Women Executives Forum in New York City to build purposeful relationships among top women leaders across the jewelry and watch sectors.

Held in celebration of International Women’s Day, nearly 25 leaders discussed ways to:

  • Identify and develop female leaders
  • Prepare for the future of jewelry retail – and the rise of the female self-purchaser
  • Create partnerships within the industry to achieve those goals

The forum’s co-chairs were Gina Drosos, CEO, Signet Jewelers, sponsor of the event; and Caryl Capeci, president, Chow Tai Fook North America. Jenny Luker, president of WJA and president of the Platinum Guild International, facilitated the focused discussion.

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
