Banish These Words in the New Year, and More January Events

Each year, Lake Superior State University releases its Dishonor List of Banished Words. The newest list included “so” (to start a sentence, as in “So, I am totally fed up with this overused word”), “price point” (when usually one of the words will work just fine), “break the internet” (classic clickbait headline), and “problematic” (“problem” does the job well in two fewer syllables). We’d also add “it’s on my radar” and “paradigm shift.” Actually, outlaw any word that makes you sound corporate and, hence, not human.

JAN. 6 Three Kings’ Day is observed with the giving of gifts to children, so get your gold charms jewelry ready and market the date.

JAN. 7 Join the jewelry Twitterati in chronicling this year’s Golden Globes, then blog about the hit jewelry selections.

JAN. 28 If you haven’t staged a promotion yet in 2017, one pegged to the Chinese New Year could be your first.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
