Jewelers Share Their Life Mottos

Published

on

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 Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
