Five Things We Never Knew About … Rodney RaynerI have a passion for motorcycles, especially Ducatis. Every summer I go for a 3,000-mile, 10-day ride from my home just south of London, across France to Switzerland, and end up in Italy, then repeat in the other direction!

I started horse riding when I was about 4 years old, and dreamed of being a jockey!

My first job after leaving school at 16 was working in a chandlery. Sailing is another hobby of mine.

I  love unpretentious fine food and wine, especially California wines like zinfandels by Martinelli Jackass Hill (love that name!) and Turley, as well as Flowers’ pinot noir.

I made my first piece of jewelry when I was 10 years old from some twisted wire I found in my dad’s garage and an unusual colored stone I found on our garden path.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
