Face Front: Facebook Ring Experiment 

Published in the January/February 2013 issue

Andrew Geoghegan, Leeds, England

CONCEPT The store owner/designer queries his Facebook audience regarding each step of the custom creation process of a ring. The fans vote, and one lucky respondent, chosen at random, receives an iPad. 

EXECUTION Fans voted on the ring design through 10 phases between April and September, beginning with a simple choice (cocktail or diamond ring?) and moving through color, shape, configuration, metal choice, setting, setting form, band style, profile/width, accent stones, and finally, a name (fans appropriately named the ring “Chosen”). Proclaimed “The World’s First Facebook Ring,” the process is described on the designer’s blog (blog.andrewgeoghegan. com).

FRIEND COUNT 2,991 (as of 1/3/13)

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
