*Four-sided 7 mm titanium men’s band from Benchmark. www.benchmarkrings.com

Benchmark bands seem to be the groom’s choice for the wedding season.— Scott Kelly; Jems Jewels & Gold, North Wales, PA

We had a nice May, with strong Mother’s Day sales from Simon G., Hearts On Fire and our own brand of diamond studs. — Peter Manka Jr.; Ben Garelick Jewelers, Williamsville, NY

High-end silver was a winner: David Yurman and John Hardy. Also, Tag Heuer sold like crazy the past few months. — Patrick McGlone; Jewels, St. Thomas, US VI

Lovelinks, Zable Beads, Silverado — anything under $200. — Annette Evans; RD Allen Freeport Jewelers, Freeport, ME

Reactor watches are doing great in an otherwise crappy watch market. — Tom R. Nelson; Nelson Jewelry, Spencer, IA

Seiko watches. We sold a dozen of the same model gents sports. — Ken Hanchey; Hanchey Jewelers, Charleston, SC

Colored stones. Sapphires especially. Thank you, Princess Diana! — Lynn Welhauser; Gordon’s Jewelers, Orlando, FL

Our top seller was our custom designs in 18K, 22K and TruPD. This palladium alloy has been a lifesaver with the high cost of platinum. — Francis Lynch; The Jeweler Studio; Mount Dora, FL

Larger diamond studs and Stuller’s Posh Mommy. — Scott Lescourt; Scottsdale Fine Jewelers, Scottsdale, AZ

Galatea has been a very good seller this spring. — Matthew Pav; Pav & Broome Jewelers, Gulfport, MS

Southern Gates (from the cargo hold) flew out the door for Mother’s Day. We can hardly keep it in stock! — Colby Kicia; Buddy’s Jewelry, Fuquay-Varina, NC

We just started carrying CrownRing’s tungsten line. The first week it was out, we sold three designs. That gets my attention. — Kari Bottenberg-Akers; Akers Diamond Galleria, Topeka, KS

Gabriel & Co. seems to provide lots of nice jewelry, great service and many price points. — Alex Weil; Martin’s Jewelry, Manhattan Beach, CA

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.”
