It is amazing the variety of goods selling. What we have noticed is that medium-priced goods ($295-$1,295) have left quickest. Our target purchases for the season are for retail items in that budget window. — Denise Oros; Linnea Jewelers, La Grange, IL

Chelsea Taylor is selling like hot cakes! We met them at the smart jewelry show. Thanks! — Stephenie Bjorkman; Sami Fine Jewelry, Fountain Hills, AZ

From Parle wave pendants in silver to 18K diamond rings from Empire Corp., if it is unusual, we will sell it!  — Rosanne Kroen; Rosanne’s Diamonds & Gold, South Bend, IN

New designs are selling well. People like a fresh look. Mark Silverstein Imagines has some nice designs that are priced pretty good.  — Colby Homec; Homec Jewelers, La Quinta, CA

We finally decided to jump on board the bead trend. We are bringing in Chamilia and are excited to see how it will do.  — Brian Franklin; Generation Jewelers, Peoria, AZ

We purchased a collection of Riley Burnett, an Australian designer, and sold almost everything in two months  — Zdena Jiroutova; Z Folio Gallery, Solvang, CA

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.
