Anthony DeMarco, who covers the fine jewelry industry for Forbes, attended the recent JCK Luxury show in Las Vegas and spoke with a number of exhibitors, some of whom were upbeat while others voiced disappointment.

He notes that even though crowds seemed lighter than in previous years, it appeared as though folks were still buying. However, he mentions that at least three established jewelry companies were upset with how the shows went, which have them considering alternatives for next year.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
