A Season When Custom-Set Teeth Earrings Were All the Rage

Aa number of years ago, a woman came into my shop and asked if I would set a pair of human teeth into earrings. Never being one to shy away from any job, I agreed and set them up in a simple setting that was, as always, distinctly my look. So some of you are saying, “Eeew. Setting human teeth. Disgusting!” But that’s not the best part. A week after I had finished those up (and she was quite happy), one of my regular customers came in and asked me if I could set one of his teeth into an earring! The woman disappeared, but he’s still a customer, and when he’s in town, he brings in his tooth earring (along with the rest of his wife’s and his jewelry) to get it cleaned. — Daniel Spirer, Daniel R.

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
