Alchemy, Portland, OR

David Iler, a custom jeweler, goldsmith and stone-setter known for platinum casting, spends part of his days leaning over a counter with paper and pencil, sketching clients’ dreams into possibilities. But the heart of his store —named America’s Coolest Small Store in 2014 — is in the back, where Iler and company render those visions in precious metal. He takes pride in the fact he’s not afraid to get his hands dirty.

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.”
