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

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.”
