2020’S HANDWASHING DEMANDS meant that rings took a backseat for many jewelry lovers this year, but what’s come of that is the desire for truly special rings: a craving for quality, uniqueness, and meaning. Give your customers a reason to buy one ring over another. How does the piece reflect their own individual personality? Is it a connection to someone they love? Will it remind them of something important to their beliefs?

Jewelry by Lafonn in sterling silver bonded with platinum includes stackable birthstone bands with simulated gemstones and simulated diamonds, $150 each; eternity band with lab-grown sapphires and simulated diamonds, $325; Heritage earrings with lab-grown sapphires and simulated diamonds, $390; Heritage necklace with lab-grown sapphires and simulated diamonds, $285; and station necklace with simulated diamonds, $225.

Bold Gold

The resurgence of lush, generous expanses of gold may have started as a ‘70s style throwback, but this trend has become something all its own. Touchable textures and the sunshine sheen of this precious metal’s buttery bounty in all its glory.

Color Theory

Adding a dash of a signature hue to one’s day wardrobe is a perfect way to inject some energy into the day-to-day. Encourage your customers to connect with the spirit of a particular shade: Perhaps they crave the playfulness of pink sapphire, the boldness of a vivid tsavorite, the serenity of blue sapphire, the passion of a rich ruby?

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
