72 PERCENT OF RESPONDENTS to INSTORE’s recent Big Survey said they did not want to add any brands. For comparison’s sake, the No. 1 brand on the list, Rolex, received 6 percent of the votes. This follows a growing trend of independent jewelers moving away from brands and toward self-branded merchandise or custom design. That said, there are still some names that carry cachet in the industry. Most were watch brands, with the exceptions of David Yurman, Cartier and Gabriel & Co.

Question: What jewelry or watch brand would you most like to add to your cases?

1. ROLEX
2. PATEK PHILIPPE
3. OMEGA
4. David Yurman
5. CartierTIE
5. TAG HeuerTIE
7. Gabriel & Co.
8. BulovaTIE

Wilkerson Testimonials

Is It Your Time to Enjoy Life? Wilkerson Can Get You There.

Mary and Tim Whalen, owners of Crown Jewelers in Pittsfield, Mass., wanted to enjoy life beyond their business. When they decided to retire and close shop, they asked Wilkerson to handle the sale. As long-time Wilkerson customers, Mary says she knew the company could manage all the details of the liquidation. It was also great to have “fresh eyes” on their business, says Mary, which “worked tremendously for us.” Today, the Whalens are beginning a new adventure but are quick to commend Wilkerson for helping them get there. “You have one chance to get it right,” she says about their retirement sale. “Do it right.”
