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
  • Bar necklaces (plain and diamond). — Sara Smather, D. Geller & Son, Smyrna, GA
  • The leaders for bridal are Verragio and Valina. — Donna Fagan, A & E Jewelers, Appleton, WI
  • First Impressions fingerprint jewelry, diamond stud earrings. — Jeff Stumpf, Goldsmith Jewelers, Little Falls, MN
  • Tom Kruskal handmade argentium silver pieces flew out of the cases! We are located in Vermont. It’s great because he is a New England designer so it makes it more of a local purchase. — MJ Chanski, Hannoush Jewelers, Rutland, VT
  • We’re doing very well with Benchmark bands, as well as Bridal Bells engagement rings. — Jodi Winters, J.J. Winters Jewelers, Muncy, PA

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
