He Dreamed of Carrying Ivanka Trump’s Jewelry Line … Here’s How He Made It Happen
The Aberdeen woven London blue topaz and diamond ring from Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry retails for $4,900.

When Jerry Bern, owner of Marshall Pierce & Co. in Chicago, learned that Ivanka Trump, daughter of Donald Trump, had a jewelry line, he knew he wanted to carry it in his store.

In a new article, the Chicago Sun-Times explains how he made it happen. In 2010 Marshall Pierce began carrying Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry, and it is currently the only independent store in the city to do so, according to the newspaper.

The upshot: Bern kept at it until he made it happen. A little luck didn’t hurt, either.

“He wrote to her office, went to visit her representatives in New York and by coincidence, he says, bumped into her once as she walked through O’Hare International Airport,” according to the newspaper.

Bern says the line is a hit with his store’s clientele.

Ivanka Trump has visited the store in the past. But Bern doesn’t expect to see her any time soon, even when she’s in town to raise funds for her father’s presidential campaign.

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
