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

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.”
