“We’ve always supported the LGBT community.”

Britten and Michelle Wolf, owners of BVW Jewelers in Reno, NV, (tagline, Extraordinary Never Ordinary) have released their second commercial in an ad campaign series called “Love Is Love” that promotes diversity and marriage equality. Wolf says the series showcases their support and commitment to all who wish to take the path toward equality.

The first commercial, which celebrated the romantic engagement of two women, was released in fall 2015 and viewed by at least 300,000 people worldwide on social media by April 2016. Reaction was overwhelmingly positive.

“My wife and I have always had a belief in equality,” Britten Wolf says. “We’ve always supported the LGBT community. It’s the law of the land now, and if two people love each other they should be able to express it any way they can.”

The new commercial in the series presents three couples, LGBT and interracial, happily becoming engaged, and flashes to images of three uniquely beautiful custom rings.

“We once again have pushed out in front of our peers in the jewelry industry who have yet to embrace the LGBT and everyone who finds a connection with another regardless of sex, color, or religion,” Wolf says. “We hope more businesses will find the courage and support while pushing for equality.”

BVW Jewelers is one of INSTORE’s 2015 America’s Coolest Stores winners. Wolf has a non-traditional approach to advertising, which works best for him. He targets online, mobile, SEO and web advertising, and uses analytics to keep track of what is working best. One of the hash tags associated with BVW Jewelers on social media is “Getting Hitched in Reno.” At least 80 percent of the business is based on custom design.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
