WHEN I WAS newly opened, I had a customer come in with an expensive watering can she used in her garden. She asked if we could put some solder on a part that leaked. I mentioned that we don’t work on watering cans, and she asked why not. I didn’t have an explanation, so we did it. Since then, we have put rhinestones on belts and shoes and even put a rhinestone in a bra/bikini top. (They never came and picked up the bra.) — Bill Brundage, Bill Brundage Jewelers, Louisville, KY

Wilkerson Testimonials

After 42 Years in Business, They Chose Wilkerson to Close Up Shop

After 42 years, it was time for Gina McHugh to hang up her bench tools and plan on doing something completely different. She and her husband, Mick, had a beautiful Binghamton, NY store — The Goldsmith — but in late 2019, the time felt right for retirement. They called Wilkerson. “They’d always been a part of our bridal jewelry selection,” says Gina, “and I felt really good about their quality and service. So, when we were looking for someone to work with us, Wilkerson was a natural.” With the kind of service and support Wilkerson is known for, Gina says their sales consultants made their retirement sale, “successful and quite easy.”
