Hot Sellers: August 2014

Triton tungsten carbide brand wedding bands by Frederick Goldman have become a mainstay and consistent seller for men’s wedding bands. — Alex Weil, Martin’s Jewelry, Manhattan Beach, CA

  • Love is in the air, and Gabriel & Co. helped fill the sails. They had the solitaires and diamond cushion cut halo for those 1-carat-plus diamonds. The turn-around service was great and kept the customers on their timeline for that big day.— Scott Kelly, Jems Jewels & Gold, North Wales, PA
  • Angelica bracelets from Royal Chain were our best-selling single category. — James Sickinger, Sickinger’s Jewelry, Lowell, IN
  • GemsOne’s Electra clarity-enhanced diamonds were strong with the millennials (they can connect the high-tech dots and see great bang for the buck), as were Rhythm of Love vibrating diamonds. — J. Dennis Petimezas, Watchmakers Diamonds & Jewelry, Johnstown, PA
  • Bigger diamonds are selling again! Luxury fashion jewelry is selling again! Luxury watches are selling again! Yay! — Dorothy Vodicka, The Gem Collection, Tallahassee, FL
  • Diamond engagement rings, Makur Designs, morganite and silver mixed metal lines. — Warren Sollod, Sollod Gold, Baltimore, MD
  • Gold skeleton keys, gold starfish, nautical charms and pendants. — Dave Williams, Williams Goldsmith & Gems, Roseville, CA
  • Black diamonds, Sylvie Collection, Simon G.Donnie Blanton, Brittany’s Fine Jewelry, Gainesville, FL
  • Anne Sportun is doing well for us, particularly in white gold with small diamonds. We’re also really excited about our reorder of Just Jules. — Andrea Riso, Talisman Collection, El Dorado Hills, CA
  • We had a run on engagement rings. Most of the diamonds went out in Facets USA mountings (by Bernard’s). — Mark Snyder, Snyder Jewelers, Weymouth, MA
  • Nicole Barr, Wrist Armor watches, M.B. Mumma contour bands. — Blake Pitts, Mark Friedman Custom Jewelers, Yorktown, VA

  • We’re doing very well with Benchmark bands, as well as Bridal Bells engagement rings. — Jodi Winters, J.J. Winters Jewelers, Muncy, PA

Wilkerson Testimonials

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.”
