A Jeweler Met This Verbal Threat with Police

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

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
