* Brands mentioned by at least two of 134 Brain Squad members when asked what they would be reordering in April.

  • One of our top sellers for the last two months has been the sterling line of Officina Bernardi. Their new line with hearts in rose already has been a big reorder. Their new gold line has expanded and is unique with a very good price point. — Scott Kelly, Jems Jewels & Gold, North Wales, PA
  • Hearts On Fire, Empire Corp. and Coast Diamond. All types of diamond jewelry were good in March. — Richard Frank, Goldstein’s, Mobile, AL
  • Ed Levin silver earrings, estate rings and Victorian antique earrings, Michou silver earrings … It was really a “for your ears only” kind of month! — Dorothy Vodicka, The Gem Collection, Tallahassee, FL
  • March was driven by custom work, engagement rings, and timepieces (Rolex, Breitling, Panerai). — Steven B. Goldfarb, Alvin Goldfarb Jeweler, Bellevue, WA
  • Morganite in rose gold always sells. I set up a dozen pieces and they sell. — Thomas Thobe, Pyramid Studios, Ellsworth, ME
  • Our “Stems and Gems” line of silver mixed with natural stones has taken off! — Linda McEathron, Design House, Waco, TX
  • Hearts on Fire diamonds are hot for us. We also had a strong month with Ippolita and John Hardy. — Tonia Ulsh, Mountz Jewelers, Camp Hill, PA
  • Victorian rings … I wish I could reorder them! — Patty Gallun Hansen, Dorothy Gallun Fine Jewelry, Cedarburg, WI
  • We sold gold earrings, mainly hoop styles, as well as pearls, diamonds and custom. — Annette Kinzie, Leonard Jewelry, Stillwater, OK
  • Wire-wrapped bracelets are still flying out the door! — Janne Etz, Contemporary Concepts, Cocoa, FL
  • Engagement rings with lab-grown center diamonds and Bella Cavo jewelry from Kelly Waters. — James Sickinger, Sickinger’s Jewelry, Lowell, IN
  • We did fairly well with Breitling and we actually sold some really nice engagement rings (quality, not quantity). We also added Omega later on in the month and have had some nice success with the watch brand already. — Marc Majors, Sam L. Majors, Midland, TX
  • Stackable rings still remain quite popular. And it leads to multiple sales to the same customer as collectibles. — Alex Weil, Martin’s Jewelry, Torrance, CA
  • Noam Carver is a hot bridal line for us! Our estate jewelry section is always a big hit, too. — Christine Osborne, Christopher’s Fine Jewelry and Rare Coins, Des Moines, IA
  • Custom platinum pieces were neck-and-neck with pearls in March. In-house Celtic knot pieces made the trifecta of top sellers. April seems to be starting off well for its assigned birthstone. — James Doggett, Doggett Jewelry, Kingston, NH

Wilkerson Testimonials

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
