ALEXANDER RYSMAN, owner of Romm Diamonds in Brockton, MA, dug deep into the igneous rock of his gemological knowledge and correctly surmised the answer to our December Gem Quiz: Yogo sapphire. Well done to Alexander, who walks away with a cool new Gem Geek t-shirt, and also to all our honorable mentions, a significant number of who perhaps not surprisingly come from Montana – natural home to the beautiful blue gem. Thanks to everyone who participated in last month’s quiz. And please look out for the next Gem Quiz coming soon at instoremag.com/fun/gem-quiz/ and in the January edition of INSTORE.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
