Jewelers Are Loosening (or Just Losing) Their Ties – The Rise of Smart Casual

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.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
