“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.

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
