Celebrate love with these jewels.

(PRESS RELEASE) Let’s face it, men are not on the same wave length when it comes to what women desire and appreciate in jewelry. They wait until the last minute for gift buying. And to top it off, they think flowers, a box of chocolates or an outing to a favorite restaurant are perfect for celebrating Valentine’s Day—that is if they remember Valentine’s Day. It’s just not top-of-mind. But for many women, it’s a day to be filled with romantic gestures, passion and meaningful gifts (read: jewelry that bespeaks the sentiment of love). It’s not that women don’t find flowers and a lovely dinner charming and thoughtful. But jewelry that reminds us of a shared and special bond is so much more appealing.

Texas Jeweler Knew He'd Get Only One Shot at a GOB Sale, So He Wanted to Make It Count

Most retailers only have one GOB sale in their lifetimes. This was the case for Gary Zoet, owner of Shannon Fine Jewelry in Houston, Texas. “Wilkerson has done thousands of these sales,” says Zoet. “I’ve never done one, so it’s logical to have somebody with experience do it.” The result exceeded Zoet’s expectations. Wilkerson took care of everything from marketing to paperwork. When it’s time for you to consider the same, shouldn’t you trust the experts in liquidation?
