Hot Sellers: February 2015




Men’s sterling silver and 18K gold Maltese cross ring by Konstantino.

We killed it with Konstantino! It was a news line for us (last) year that we just put in late November and it moved out like I’ve never seen before. — Marc Majors, Sam L. majors, Midland, TX

  • Without a doubt our hottest seller was the Rhythm of Love pendants and earrings from GemsOne, in particular the silver. We sold almost 400 pieces in silver, and many dozens in gold. — Mark Clodius, Clodius & Co., Rockford, IL
  • We sold boatloads of GemsOne, Alex and Ani, lots of engagement rings, Tom Kruskal and Officina Bernardi. — MJ Chanski, Hannoush Jewelers, Rutland, VT
  • Diamond studs of 1.50 to 2.25 carats were great gifts this year. Engagement rings from Gabriel & Co. are going to bring us more wedding ring sales this spring. It was a diamond holiday season. — Scott Kelly, Jems Jewels & Gold, North Wales, PA
  • Charles Garnier bracelets, Wind and Fire bracelets (by CG Creations) and diamond studs. — James Wolf, James Wolf Jewelers, Mason, OH
  • This was a year of big and unusual. Several big diamonds at the end of the season and some very rare timepieces. Otherwise, a big year for Roberto Coin (fashion was strong again) and huge for Mikimoto (pearls are very much in the zeitgeist). — Steven B. Goldfarb, Alvin Goldfarb Jeweler, Bellevue, WA
  • Rembrandt charms; Officina Bernardi silver. — Eileen Eichhorn, Eichhorn Jewelry, Decatur, IN
  • Once again the product lines Meira T and Empire Corp. with their unique diamond necklaces performed head and shoulders above other vendors. — Denise Oros, Linnea Jewelers, La Grange, IL
  • Reflection beads from Quality Gold and Angelica bracelets from Royal Chain were our heaviest sellers, but we also did very very well with the product in our eight-page Christmas flyer from Berco. — James Sickinger, Sickinger’s Jewelry, Lowell, IN
  • Diamond jewelry, mostly Simon Golub, colored gemstone jewelry by Allison Kaufman, Colore by Simon Golub, Pandora by the bucket loads. — Pat Gilmore, Dunbar Jewelers, Yakima, WA
  • Ed Levin, Elisa Ilana and Honora were strong sellers for us. — Annette Kinzie, Leonard Jewelry, Stillwater, OK
  • We sold a lot of watches: Philip Stein and Victorinox Swiss Army. We also sold a lot of pieces by Artistry Ltd. — Andrea Riso, Talisman Collection, El Dorado Hills, CA
  • Shimmering Diamonds necklaces by Ostbye. — Albert Yocom, Yocom Jewelry, Marceline, MO
  • Midas Chain’s LightZ earrings, Heartbeat diamond collection by Simply Diamonds. — Joseph Delefano, Regency Jewelers, Rotterdam, NY

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
