The sure thing is the Casio G-Shock. Anyone that has any kind of urban clientele needs to have these watches. Rap and hip hop stars are being seen everywhere with them on. I am selling them to customers who told time only on their cell phones before. — Jeff Cody; Times At Hand, Wilmington, NC

Zable beads were huge, as were Expression bracelets by Bernard’s. — Mark Snyder; Snyder Jewelers, Weymouth, MA

Hot Sellers: July 2010

We did very well with Chamilia and sold several color pieces from Livingstone. — Robert Sirois; Classique Jewelers, Frisco, TX

Beads and charms — specifically we refilled our Rembrandt display. What a difference! — Danielle Fritz; Centerville Coin & Jewelry Connection, Dayton, OH

Cortez pearls set in custom mountings. These are truly rare, as opposed to common diamonds and colored stones. The harvest is fewer than 500 pearls per year for the entire world market, so it is a wonderful, exclusive niche. — Elizabeth Breon; Coast Jewelers, Florence, OR

Galatea did very well for us during Mother’s Day, especially in the $300 to $600 range. — Rick Morgan; Morgan Brothers, Portsmouth, OH

Elyssa Bass was a vendor we added during the Smart Show in Chicago. It has been flying out the door! We literally can’t keep it in stock! — Lee Krombholz; Krombholz Jewelers, Cincinnati, OH

Pandora … That’s pretty much what we do now … sell Pandora. — Christine Graichen; Malloves Jewelers, Middletown, CT

Chinese freshwater pearls. The 6-foot ropes of pearls are fun to wrap and layer! — Angela Doering; JC Jewelers, Jackson, WY
Kameleon jewelry has been the best volume line. — Joe Prewett; Southern Hills Jewelry, West Plains, MO

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.
