(PRESS RELEASE) PALO ALTO, CALIFORNIA — Silicon Valley Insurtech, Zillion, announces its support of Mercury Free Mining (MFM), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to the eradication of mercury use in artisanal and small-scale gold mining (ASGM) and ensuring the public trust in the jewelry industry gold supply chain.

Nearly 40% of global mercury pollution originates from 15 to 20 million ASGM who have no practical alternatives to using toxic mercury in their gold mining. MFM is calling on jewelry industry leaders to stand in solidarity with these miners and commit to the development and deployment of responsible gold-sourcing practices.
 
Zillion, an Ambassador Circle Member of Mercury Free Mining’s Leadership Council, acknowledges the critical importance of supporting sustainable, efficient, and safe gold mining practices. 
 
“We care deeply about people and the environment”, said Adam Black, Zillion’s Managing Director. “By putting the wellbeing of women and men in the mines at the forefront, and while protecting the fragile environment, the Mercury Free Mining initiative fully aligns with our company and personal values. As an innovator in the jewelry industry, we are honored and privileged to support this important cause”.
 
Zillion seeks to support causes that have real impact in the industries and communities close to home – organizations like Black Girls Code, Feeding America, Chattanooga Area Food Bank, Jewelers for Children, and Mercury Free Mining.
 
As part of its mission to simplify and improve the way jewelers and consumers interact with insurance, Zillion stands committed to further aligning its values with innovative, impactful organizations aiming to build a more vibrant future for all.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
