“We just needed our shot.”

Baron Championship Rings in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, has released a new video showing how it made the Cleveland Cavaliers’ 2016 NBA Championship rings.

Company officials saw the job as Baron’s big break. As one of them explains in the video, “In the past we’ve had a shot at some important rings. Our designs were always the best, but we were often turned down based on our unknown nature against the big boys.”

The design process for such elaborate rings is no simple matter. As Gizmodo explains, “there’s 3D printing, cool flames, light hammering, and a whole lot of detail involved.”

Fortunately, the rings turned out just right.

“We always stayed hungry knowing we just needed our shot,” the official said.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
