We are stocking up on Lestage’s Convertible Collection, particularly the holiday-themed clasps. The polar bear is adorable! — Casey Gallant; Stephen Gallant Jewelers, Orleans, MA

Everlon has started to sell well since we received it. — Debbie Greene; Helm’s Jewelry, Columbia, TN

Artisan jewelry is doing well for us. We purchased some beautiful things in Tucson, and they sold well, so we are contacting the sellers to purchase more one-of-a-kind type pieces. — Patty Gallun Hansen; Dorothy Gallun Fine Jewelry, Cedarburg, WI

Gold. Hard to believe, but with gold prices as high as they are, people seem to have a new appreciation for its perceived value. — Anthony Mohr; Anthony M’s Visions in Gold, Wheat Ridge

We have had an uptick in Sarah Graham sales. People love the black from the oxidized steel.  — Colby Homec; Homec Jewelers, La Quinta, CA

Canadian diamond engagement rings are very strong. — John Zeke; Zeke’s Jewellers, Brandon, MB, Canada

Ed Levin Jewelry. It’s hand-crafted with great, timeless designs. — Angela Doering; JC?Jewelers, Jackson, WY

This season’s must-have is our bread-and-butter line from Empire Corporation. We really are excited about our Spark platinum engagements and Adwar’s stacker bands. — Denise Oros; Linnea Jewelers, La Grange, IL

Scott Kay men’s sterling is new for us and makes me smile! I never thought I could sell men’s fashion bracelets. — Peter Manka Jr.; Ben Garelick Jewelers, Williamsville, NY

Gabriel & Co. is hot. Big looks, chunky rings and strands of gold with stones. — Barbara Oliver; Barbara L. Oliver & Co., Williamsville, NY

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.”
