We are selling a little bit of every-thing, but I was surprised to know that our watch sales are way up. (Citizen, bulova, and wittenaur.) — Charles Brushert; J.R. Brushert Jewelers, Wausau, WI

Sterling reputation is selling well. — James Sickinger; Sickinger’s Jewelry, Lowell, IN

Very good action on Rego shared prong diamond wedding bands. — Jeffrey Bertman; Roger’s Jewelry, Quincy, MA

Halo rings under $995 are hot. — Woody Justice; Justice Jewelers, Springfield, MO

Rebecca is flying out of the case. — Lynn Greifenstein; Bartlett Jewelers, Bradenton, FL

Silver, the new platinum, is selling, selling and selling — any organic, yoga-momma-type items. Simple pendants with initials and maybe small gemstones. — Denise Oros; Linnea Jewelers, La Grange, IL

Michou. Brand new, and we’re almost sold out. — Terry & Sandy Smith; GoldSmith Jewelers, Little Falls, MN

We’ve designed new bridesmaid and groomsmen gift cases and we’ve done well with them. We stock mostly with items from Quality Gold, which look great and most of the items are triple key, which is great too. We also offer discounts for large wedding parties. — Lisa Baca; Princess Bride Diamonds, Huntington Beach, CA

Marriage pendants by Dangler Studios! We promoted these pendants for the anniversary season of June, July and August and they’ve performed very well. — Peter Manka Jr.; Ben Garelick Jewelers, Williamsville, NY

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.”
