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

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
