  • John Atencio was a great seller for us for Valentine’s Day. — Andrea Riso, Talisman Collection, El Dorado Hills, CA
  • We sold solitaire earrings over and over. Not sure what happened here. Last week of February I sold 3 TCW, 2 TCW, 1 TCW. Last Friday of the month, I had a customer walk in and buy 1 TCW. Fifteen minutes later a guy walked in and wanted 1 TCW. I was low from Valentine’s Day. Thank goodness the Equity salesman was in the shop, I sold a pair straight from his line. — Julie Brasher, Julie’s Jewels & Gifts, Greenville, SC

Wilkerson Testimonials

Wilkerson: “They Feel Like Family”

Newton’s Jewelers in Fort Smith, Ark., was a true institution. But after being at the helm for most of his life, owner (and descendent of the original founder) Kelly Newton decided it was time to retire. He chose Wilkerson to handle the sale. “I’ve known the owners of Wilkerson for a long, long time. I felt at home with them,” he says. The final retirement sale was just a “blast” and the Wilkerson sales team made it so very simple and straightforward, says Newton. Would he recommend Wilkerson to others? Absolutely. “They’ve done incredible work,” says Newton. “They feel like family.”
