* Brands mentioned by at least 2 of 114 Brain Squad members when asked what they would be reordering in December.

  • Michou, Tracy Arrington and Ania Haie are doing amazing for us. The price points are fantastic, and we are not only selling as gifts, but we’re also selling one to the buyer too. — Shannon Akridge, Clater Jewelers Diamond Center, Louisville, KY
  • Kir and Cynthia Desser — bridge jewelry with great price points for self-purchasing women and gift-giving. Both designed and led by women. — Jessica Rossomme, Mucklow’s Fine Jewelry, Peachtree City, GA
  • Hearts on Fire needs almost no promotion as more people are repeat customers! They love the brilliance. Custom work, as always, is strong for us. — Kim Hatchell, Galloway & Moseley, Sumter, SC
  • Estate pieces are moving to new owners in a most pleasing fashion, kind of like when your brother-in-law finally vacates your guestroom. — James Doggett, Doggett Jewelry, Kingston, NH
  • For some reason, ruby jewelry was strong. In fact, all colored stone jewelry was strong, as we had several colored stone trunk shows that went well. Also, one-carat loose or simply mounted diamonds. — Dorothy Vodicka, The Gem Collection, Tallahassee, FL
  • To my surprise, lab-grown diamonds took off the week we put them in. Larger stones — one-carat and up — and a 55 percent gross margin! No ads, just showed them and bam! Times they are a-changing. — Alan Perry, Perry’s Emporium, Wilmington, NC
  • We posted a great close-up photo of a new 14K yellow gold oval 1.02-ct. set in a thin woven style shank and posed on top of a pumpkin. We said to “be thankful for the one you love this holiday.” We then sold a ton of engagement rings! Mary Jo Chanski, Hannoush Jewelers, Rutland, VT
  • It was a bracelet month! Diamond bracelets, Vahan bracelets, John Hardy bracelets, and yellow gold bracelets. — Richard Frank, Goldstein’s, Mobile, AL
  • Estate jewelry and period pieces, mostly rings circa 1900 to 1940s, but still making a living on diamond engagement rings one-carat and up, mostly rounds. — Barry Fixler, Barry’s Estate Jewelry, Bardonia, NY
  • Repairs are what keep the doors open; we are known for good service at a great price. Our custom work is up also. It is always earrings that move fast, as everyone needs another pair to match something. We get most of our earring findings from Stuller and make them in the shop. — Sherrie Schilling Devaney, Sherrie’s Jewelry Box, Tigard, OR
  • Re-tapping and re-channeling! Everyone wanted their jewelry fixed for the holidays. — Jennifer Farnes, Revolution Jewelry Works, Colorado Springs, CO
  • Bridal and Daum crystal seemed to be the bright spot for November. — Marc Majors, Sam L. Majors, Midland, TX
  • Overnight Mountings, Frederic Duclos and Galatea. — Laura Mease, Measetique Jewels, Shawnee, KS

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
