“WJA Membership is one of the most important gifts you can give your jewelry industry career,” says Clare Ullman, membership chair. “From the networking at Jewelry Night Out and at a variety of trade shows, access to our scholarship and grant opportunities, mentorship and leadership development, and WJA Connect, it’s worth the price of admission.”

WJA also encourages attendees to use the hashtag #WJAJewelryNightOut during the evening to connect events nationwide on social sites.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
