They’re dressing more like their customers.

Like the rest of society, jewelers are dressing more casually than 10 years ago.

That’s what we found in Big Survey 2017 when we asked, “What most closely describes your typical attire at work.”

As one jeweler told us: “We have learned to dress more like our customers, depending on season. Makes them much more comfortable and does away with the ‘this must be expensive’ thought from our suit-and-tie days.”

Here are this year’s results, along with 2007 figures for comparison.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
