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

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
