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.

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
