Jewelers Share Their Life Mottos



There’s more to life than jewelry. Okay, maybe not much more, but many of our readers did wax philosophical when asked, “If you were to get a ‘life motto’ tattoo, what would it say?”

Out of 341 responses, the most popular had to do with treating others with respect, enjoying yourself and dedication to your craft. They were:

  • “Live and let live.”
  • “Live, laugh, love.”
  • “Work hard.”
    There were, of course, several jewelry-related life mottos:
  • “Already have a tattoo: a diamond! To represent ‘Brilliance, sparkle, shine.’”
  • “Like [British celebrity] Lisa Vanderpump said: ‘Life isn’t all diamonds and rose, but it should be!’”
  • “Wait! I changed my mind!”
  • “You want it when?”
    A few responses were rather aggressive:
  • “Kiss this (on my butt).”
  • “Quit botherin’ me.”
  • “F— off.”
  • “Pull down your pants and slide on the ice.”
    And finally, two had … er, interesting instructions for the reader:
  • “If no heartbeat, turn off all life support equipment, wait 30 seconds and reboot.”
  • “It would be inside my thigh and say ‘In case of emergency, pull handle.’”

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.”
