Six Jewelry Gift Ideas for Business Clients


CATEGORY: USB crystalline memory stick

TELL ’EM THIS: It’s always a treat to take something utilitarian and give it a sense of fun. These portable, bedazzled USB sticks hold tons of data, but are as much fun as a frivolous accessory.

WHO’S IT FOR: Sparkle aficionados

MSRP: $59 each

(888) 207-9873 |


CATEGORY: Matte silver decision maker

TELL ’EM THIS: Think of this little gadget as the contemporary answer to the Magic 8 Ball. It’s a fun desktop toy for moments when it’s tough to figure out what to do. Spin the dial and it will offer advice with options like, “pass the buck” or “sit on it.”

WHO’S IT FOR: Indecisive associates

MSRP: $25

(212) 685-5308 |


CATEGORY: Mini digital photo frame

TELL ’EM THIS: Sure, a smartphone holds hundreds of pictures — that doesn’t stop anyone from wanting photos of friends and family on display. This digital frame can display up to 30 images. You can add your logo to the front of the frame, too.

WHO’S IT FOR: Photo gazers

MSRP: $29.99

(626) 357-9999 |



CATEGORY: Titanium multi-tool collar stays

TELL ’EM THIS: MacGyver would have had a field day with these collar stays. Yes, they keep a collar upright, but they’re also tools that can open a bottle, turn a screw or cut a thread.

WHO’S IT FOR: Well dressed adventure seekers

MSRP: $50


CATEGORY: Silver-plated business card holder

TELL ’EM THIS: It’s a digital world, but every businessperson still carries cards. An elegant case to store them is preferable to rummaging through pockets to find one. A cheeky engraving that reads “let’s do lunch,” shows a sense of humor.

WHO’S IT FOR: A polished pro

MSRP: $20

(866) 999-5283 |


CATEGORY: Carbon fiber rollerball pen

TELL ’EM THIS: Stumped for what to give? No one will ever be disappointed by a well-appointed pen. It’s composed of ultra light carbon fiber, so that it’s not a chore to carry around. Engrave the recipient’s name so it doesn’t feel nondescript.

WHO’S IT FOR: Anyone. It’s a one size fits all solution.

MSRP: $25.99

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.
