I got a call from a husband in the middle of a nasty divorce telling me his soon-to-be ex was on her way to make us buy back the engagement ring and was threatening to kill us if we didn’t. Imagine her surprise when she was met by the police. She said she wasn’t really going to kill us, but she admitted to saying it and they took her away. A year later, the husband came in to buy an engagement ring for a new lady. He asked if we had a return policy. I said we did: “No Returns On Special Orders.” And we were considering this very special! Chuck Kuba, Iowa Diamond, West Des Moines, IA

Why This Fourth-Generation Jeweler Chose Wilkerson for a Very Special Sale

Parian & Sons of Franklin Lakes, NJ was founded in the early part of the 20th century. But even stores that have successfully made it through the Great Depression, a World War and the Woodstock Generation must come to an end. With no family wanting to continue the tradition, the time was right for Glenn Parian and his wife, Maria, to retire. And what better way to do so than by hiring Wilkerson to help with the store’s liquidation sale. As Glenn puts it, with his credit card machine humming to the tune of up to 200 transactions a day, he couldn’t have done it without Wilkerson. “This is what they do,” he says. “This is what they do for everybody.”
