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.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
