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

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
