The thing about 80-year-old customers is they often lose their belly rings.




Humor: How One Jeweler “Helped a Sister Out”

“We have an octogenarian customer who insists we put in her new belly rings when she invariably loses one. I’m not even sure how it started, but here I am, 12 years later, still helping a sister out …” — Sandra Locken, Sarini Fine Jewellery, Vulcan, AB



Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
