Hot Sellers: February 2010

Published

on

[h4]We do very well with pavé or bead-set diamond hoops and diamond studs in a price point from $250 to $999. — John Zeke; Zeke’s Jewelers, Brandon, MB [/h4]


The [highlight]Everlon Love Knot[/highlight] was great. I am surprised how many independents stayed away from this product — what an easy seller. — Jeff Stadheim; Stadheim’s, Mason City, IA

[highlight]The Touch[/highlight] changeable bracelets were very strong. Also their nautical cable did well, especially the new sterling and two-tone pieces. — Tory Michel; Tory’s Jewelry, Marblehead, MA

One-of-a-kind pieces in the $500 to $1,000 range seemed to be the flavor of the month. — David Phelps; Precision Platinum, Durham, NC

[highlight]Lecil Henderson performed well — not the biggest in numbers of items; but high interest, and the items that sold were big tickets. — R.G. Carreras; Carreras Ltd., Richmond, VA

Kate McCullar’s line from [highlight]Bauman-Massa[/highlight]. — Aimee Utterback, Rhodes Jewelry, Fort Wayne, IN

[highlight]Citizen[/highlight] watches between $150-$300. — A.G. Becker; Becker Jewelers, Breese, IL

We sold many South Sea and Tahitian Pearl strands — especially in unusual colors. — Elana Rubin; Rubin Jewelers, Mequon, WI

Gold earrings under $150. Gold jewelry under $500. Diamond jewelry under $400. — David Schoeneman; Shane’s The Pawn Shop, Chicago Heights, IL

We sold lots of [highlight]Bulova[/highlight] and [highlight]Caravelle[/highlight] watches. — Paul Q. LeMay; Golden Enterprises, Bracebridge, ON

Diamond stud earrings were by far one of our best sellers this holiday. We went out on a limb this year by not making them ourselves because [highlight]Simon Golub[/highlight] came out with a program that was not only up to our standards of quality but less expensive than doing it ourselves. — Casey Gallant; Stephen Gallant Jewelers, Orleans, MA

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
