THIS MONTH’S LEAD STORY may leave some of you scratching your heads.

A magazine for jewelry store owners running a big feature which tells them how to get out of the business?

Like everyone in the industry, we want the jewelry business as a whole to continue to grow and prosper. (Who needs high-end multimedia components? Let’s trounce those luxury car dealerships!) But most of all, we’re here to support you ? every single individual amongst the 22,000+ storeowners who receive this magazine each month.

And we know that there are storeowners out there who are struggling, who are unhappy, and who might be thinking ?Is this really the right business for me?

Maybe you’re facing long hours, small profits, and an ever-strengthening competition. Or maybe you’re simply … let’s whisper the word so nobody else can hear us … bored.

Of course, there are many things you can do to turn it around. And, in these pages each month, we present many ideas you can use to boost your happiness, your effectiveness, and your chance of survival.

But you know what? If all that still doesn’t work, then maybe it really is time to get out. And the goal of this month’s lead stry is to reassure you that it really will be okay — that there is life after jewelry retail. The stories in this month’s lead are vivid proof of that. 

Wishing you the very best business …

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!”
