TO STAY SHARP and motivated, it’s important to take some time off work every now and then. A nice vacation can be just the thing to re-energize a weary jeweler.

Gene the Jeweler, a fictional character created by marketing specialist Jimmy DeGroot, understands this. Or so he says.

Gene takes his team to Las Vegas once a year for the trade shows. That counts a vacation, doesn’t it?

Or perhaps you define a vacation as time spent away from your team. If that’s the case, the Gene takes one every single day when he leaves work.

Or maybe Gene just doesn’t get it.

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
