Humor: This Customer Turned Sweethearts Around Quickly

“Guy came in before Christmas with a diamond. We found a Stuller setting on Showcase and set his diamond. Picked it up Dec. 23. Came back after the New Year to tell me they broke up. Offered to sell his ring on consignment and he brought it in Feb. 3. He called me three weeks later to have it sized down for his new sweetheart.” — Cliff Yankovich, Chimera Design, Lowell, MI

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.”
