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

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
