“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 Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
