Hot Sellers: February 2010

[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

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.
