MARC MAJORS: Very cool and edgy piece! This is a casual ring that has the potential to be a conversation starter.

LINDY KAVANAUGH: I love that the twinkle of the diamonds and the subtle finish on the gold are brought to life by the contrast of the oxidized cobalt; it really makes this ring glow! This design is so simple, yet unique and easily suitable for many occasions.

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.”
