There’s an upside and a slight downside.

Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, has taken a liking to jewelry by Birks Inc., and that’s a good thing for the company — for the most part.

Markle has worn pieces from the Montreal-based company in public many times, and the exposure has led to sales spikes, Maclean’s reports. 

Her unofficial endorsement of Birks — there’s no official relationship, and Markle buys the jewelry at retail — is, in a way, priceless.

But there’s also a “slightly negative” side to the situation in that all buzz about Birks currently centers on Markle, said Eva Hartling, vice president for Maison Birks.

“We’re launching new collections in the fall, but nobody cares unless the duchess decides to buy a piece and wear it,” she said.

Hartling noted, however, that the company is “not complaining.”

When Liquidation Is the Best Option, This Legendary Jeweler Chose Wilkerson

George Koueiter & Sons Jewelers, a 65-year old jewelry institution in Grosse Pointe, MI, had always been a mainstay in this suburban Detroit community. But when owners George and Paul Koueiter were ready to retire, they made the decision to close rather than sell. “We decided our best option to do the liquidation sale was Wilkerson,” says Paul Koueiter. The results, says George Koueiter, exceeded expectations and the process was easy. “Wilkerson just kept us in mind,” says George. “They never did anything without asking and whatever they asked us to do was just spot on.”
