Here’s How to Answer the Woman Who Asks ‘Is It Too Big?’




“Lady, not if you can lift your hand.”

When to say it? A female customer is trying on a diamond ring. She looks at it from this angle and that angle, shakes her head, and then asks, “Is it too big?”

Why? The implication is that there’s no such thing as a diamond that’s too big. Of course, that’s not always the case. But, said with a chuckle, it’s a funny way of reminding the buyer that for the overwhelming majority of women on the planet, diamonds are the ultimate luxury and that if she’s in a position to spoil herself with a big one, she should take it.

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.”
