The client was handing one of my associates a huge pair of diamond earrings to be cleaned. When she held out her hand to receive them, my employee commented on the brown stuff on the earrings. Heavily drugged, Madame answered, “Oh I think that’s blood.” My associate’s hand disappeared so quickly that those giant rocks bounced off the counter and flew into the store. After a few seconds, not missing a beat, the customer replied, “Oh, don’t worry about that, it’s dried.” Holy biohazard, Batgirl! — Denise O., La Grange, IL

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
