He’s taking a very straightforward approach.

As the jewelry industry frets about how to appeal to millennials, who don’t always seem to hold diamonds in the same regard that older generations do, Colorado jewelry designer Todd Reed isn’t content to sit and ponder the issue.

He’s asking the target market directly, the Daily Camera reports. 

Boulder-based Todd Reed Jewelry has started a nationwide “listening campaign” to find out what the younger generation really thinks, according to the newspaper.

Reed has noted that millennial customers are often less interested in diamonds as a status symbol and more concerned with getting something unique. They sometimes tell him, “I want something really cool that doesn’t look like I’ve spent a lot of money,” the Daily Camera reports.

Margot Ricci  said she and her fiance, Austin Bush, were happy to be among the first half-dozen couples in Boulder to be part of one of the jeweler’s listening events. She said she appreciated the fact that “someone wanted to tell a positive story about me as a millennial.”

Todd Reed Jewelry also recently announced the launch of its Forged Your Own Way bridal set giveaway. The one month digital campaign, which was set to launch on Feb. 14, asks millennials to submit a short video detailing how they are forging their own way in life and love. The winner, to be announced in April, will receive a complimentary set of wedding bands.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
