Affordable Engagement Rings TikTok Video Goes Viral for Retailer

This Mississippi jeweler generated millions of TikTok views with a shortlist of inexpensive diamond rings.




With the help of a new in-house marketing director, Juniker Jewelry in Madison County, MS, came up with a “cute idea,” asking followers of their TikTok channel to choose among six reasonably priced engagement rings. The video, titled “sweet engagement rings under $2,000!”, attracted more than a million views. Shortly after, Juniker followed up with a similar video captioned “engagement rings under 4k. Which one do you want on ur finger?” It attracted 1.4 million views. “We went viral overnight,” noted owner John Ravenstein, adding “Ladies love diamonds, no matter the age.”

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.”
