WE AS A CULTURE are feeling a little more rebellious than usual in 2017, and earrings are the perfect way to translate that sentiment into jewelry. This is a big, brave, bold moment for the ear, from creative multi-piercing combinations spotted on street-style stars to Beyonce’s mega-statement ear wear at the 2017 Grammys.

Perfect for Stacking

The fun of multiple ear piercings has reached every age group of the customer base, and if you’re smart, you’ll stock plenty of stack-ready earrings to match the demand. Remind your shoppers that if they’re rocking multiple piercings, each pair of earrings they take home is several looks in one — especially if they’re bold enough to try asymmetrical styling.

Wilkerson Testimonials

A Liquidation Sale during a Pandemic? Wilkerson Showed Them the Way

For 25 years, Stafford Jewelers of Cincinnati, Ohio, was THE place to go for special gifts, engagement diamonds, high-end Swiss watch brands — in other words, the crème de la crème of fine jewelry. But this summer, the Stafford family was ready to retire. So, they chose Wilkerson to help them close up shop. “One of the biggest concerns was having the sale in the middle of COVID,” says Director of Stores Michelle Randle. Wilkerson gave the Stafford team plenty of ideas as well as safety guidelines, which they closely followed. “All of the employees felt safe, the customers coming in the door felt safe and we did a lot of business,” says Randle. How much business? “The inventory flew,” she says. Translation: They sold millions and millions of dollars-worth of merchandise. Randle calls it, “an incredible experience.” Would she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers who are thinking of thinning their inventories or retiring? “Everyone got more than what they expected out of the sale. You have to hire Wilkerson. They’re amazing.”
