AC Zuckerman Jewelers WI Location Changes Ownership

After more than 25 years serving the Milwaukee community, the brand focus shifts to South Florida and ethically-sourced lab-created gems.




(PRESS RELEASE) BOCA RATON, FL — AC Zuckerman Jewelers, a traditional jewelry establishment that launched in Mequon, WI, 1996, announced that store ownership will be transitioned over the next few months, allowing the parent company, Anna Zuckerman Luxury (AZL), to put all design and sales focus on ethically-sourced, lab-created gems.

The new owners will bring an updated line of fine jewelry, with gold and diamond pieces, and will continue to assist existing customers, provide expedient repairs, and periodically unveil new and innovative designs to liven up the Milwaukee fashion scene. They will reopen at the same location, under a different name. The date is yet to be determined, but they are prepared to make customers the number one priority, as the location has for the last 25 years.

Located at 1340 West Mequon Road, Anna Zuckerman used the opportunity of the retail location to act as a base of operations for community outreach and charity fundraising. Following this instinct to help was partly why Anna began researching and designing luxury jewelry for everyday lifestyles and budgets.

More than a decade after opening the store, Anna began researching state-of-the-art, conscientiously derived, precious metals and stones, as well as the nanotechnology behind it. She worked directly with manufacturing experts to help develop what is now known as Diamond Coated Crystalline; a new finishing technique that truly gives lab-cut jewels the same intricate beauty of diamonds, while ensuring they remain both high in quality and shockingly affordable.

“The fact that every woman deserves to sparkle has been the AZL mantra since the beginning,” said Anna, owner and founder of the Anna Zuckerman Luxury brand. “Leaving Wisconsin is very difficult for us, personally, but our commitment to offering affordable luxury to literally everyone means a clean break from my former life in traditional jewelry. We opened our new corporate office and flagship AZL store in Boca Raton within the last year, and we’re now ready to formally and officially make demi-precious jewelry the foundation of this next stage.”




When There’s No Succession Plan, Call Wilkerson

Bob Wesley, owner of Robert C. Wesley Jewelers in Scottsdale, Ariz., was a third-generation jeweler. When it was time to enjoy life on the other side of the counter, he weighed his options. His lease was nearing renewal time and with no succession plan, he decided it was time to call Wilkerson. There was plenty of inventory to sell and at first, says Wesley, he thought he might try to manage a sale himself. But he’s glad he didn’t. “There’s no way I could have done this as well as Wilkerson,” he says. Wilkerson took responsibility for the entire event, with every detail — from advertising to accounting — done, dusted and managed by the Wilkerson team. “It’s the complete package,” he says of the Wilkerson method of helping jewelers to easily go on to the next phase of their lives. “There’s no way any retailer can duplicate what they’ve done.”
