Have You Heard?

The Beauty in All

Award-winning jewelry designer Jose Hess was one of the original leaders of the American designer jewelry movement. He served as the first American president of CIBJO, helped found the American Jewelry Design Council, and tirelessly supported emerging designers. Thanks to THE BEAUTY IN ALL, a new book lovingly written by Jose’s wife and design partner Magdalena Hess, we have a chance to get to know the remarkable man behind the jewelry a little bit better.

When There’s No Succession Plan, Call Wilkerson

Bob Wesley, owner of Robert C. Wesley Jewelers in Scottsdale, Ariz., was a third-generation jeweler. When it was time to enjoy life on the other side of the counter, he weighed his options. His lease was nearing renewal time and with no succession plan, he decided it was time to call Wilkerson. There was plenty of inventory to sell and at first, says Wesley, he thought he might try to manage a sale himself. But he’s glad he didn’t. “There’s no way I could have done this as well as Wilkerson,” he says. Wilkerson took responsibility for the entire event, with every detail — from advertising to accounting — done, dusted and managed by the Wilkerson team. “It’s the complete package,” he says of the Wilkerson method of helping jewelers to easily go on to the next phase of their lives. “There’s no way any retailer can duplicate what they’ve done.”
