“She had this sparkle in her eye and she was so alive.”

Jewelers often run into prominent people, but Rick Harvey has a story to top most. He recently told KTVB-TV of the time he worked with Mother Teresa, who was declared a saint by Pope Francis on Sept. 4. Today Harvey operates Artsmith’s Jewelry in Boise, ID, where he specializes in custom-designed pieces. But 22 years ago, he had the opportunity to travel with just over a dozen people to Calcutta and spend eight days “working in halfway houses and orphanages,” according to KTVB.

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.
