Jeweler Refuses to Honor Warranty After Price of Gold Increases

A dose of watchdog journalism helped the business change its mind.

A woman who had repeated problems with a gold chain she bought from Schubach Jewelers in Utah was denied a replacement even though her warranty entitled her to one, KUTV reports. The article says that she had the chain repaired more than six times, which qualified her for a replacement under the terms of her warranty. But when she requested a new chain, the store told her that it would cost more because the price of gold had increased.

Fortunately, the woman called the KUTV news station, which took the initiative of calling Schubach’s corporate office to find out what in the Sam Hill was going on. The jeweler, naturally, backtracked on its stance and honored the warranty.

Here’s the video report.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
