Here’s What Happens When Meghan Markle Wears Your Jewelry Brand

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.”

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
