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.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
