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

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.”
