New York--Jewelers of America announced this week that it has partnered with Jewelry Asset Services (J.A.S.) to offer its members competitive rates on business loans.

J.A.S. is a bank loan and inventory lending consulting company that specializes in the jewelry industry. By partnering with J.A.S., JA will be able to offer its members competitive rates or discounts on J.A.S.’s suite of financial services.

In addition to the new business loan benefit, JA members now will save on all services and templates from technology and marketing company W.R. Cobb Online, including 15 percent off an e-commerce website and 10 percent off monthly hosting and service fees.

JA also is now offering members access to competitive workers’ compensation coverage via Wasserman & Wexler, d/b/a IJB, and affiliated agencies.

“Our priority is always to tailor the discounts and programs we offer to address the issues that keep jewelers up at night,” said JA President and CEO David J. Bonaparte. “These new benefits offer financial, e-commerce and insurance support, three areas that directly contribute to the success and longevity of jewelry businesses.”
