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

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

After 42 Years in Business, They Chose Wilkerson to Close Up Shop

After 42 years, it was time for Gina McHugh to hang up her bench tools and plan on doing something completely different. She and her husband, Mick, had a beautiful Binghamton, NY store — The Goldsmith — but in late 2019, the time felt right for retirement. They called Wilkerson. “They’d always been a part of our bridal jewelry selection,” says Gina, “and I felt really good about their quality and service. So, when we were looking for someone to work with us, Wilkerson was a natural.” With the kind of service and support Wilkerson is known for, Gina says their sales consultants made their retirement sale, “successful and quite easy.”
