e’ve got a story coming up about what’s “awesome” about being in the retail jewelry business.

Here are five of my favorites, from among 50 you’ll find in print in INSTORE in May, to add a little inspiration to your day. Please feel free to comment — and add what’s on your own list.

1. Making an object someone loves that will outlast you. Every piece is like a bit of immortality.

2. On Christmas morning, hundreds of folks squealing with delight, opening boxes with your name on them.

3. The freedom to be a hopeless romantic.

4. You become a good listener, in and out of your store. You’re really a psychologist without a degree.

5. The privilege of helping people as they celebrate the milestones of their lives.

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!”
