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

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
