Line Time: Two-Months’ Salary Rule




[h3]”As a rule, you are supposed to spend two or three months’ salary on an engagement ring. It’s supposed to hurt a bit — it shows commitment!” [/h3]

Harriet Kelsall from Harriet Kelsall Jewellery Design in the U.K. explaining the two-months’ salary rule to a customer.

We saw this quote on the Rapaport Tradewire and thought it was a pretty good way of responding to someone who asks about how much to spend. It acknowledges the pain, while at the same time smooths the way for a high-ticket purchase. De Beers would be proud.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
