My Life: David Iler

David Iler

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: “They Feel Like Family”

Newton’s Jewelers in Fort Smith, Ark., was a true institution. But after being at the helm for most of his life, owner (and descendent of the original founder) Kelly Newton decided it was time to retire. He chose Wilkerson to handle the sale. “I’ve known the owners of Wilkerson for a long, long time. I felt at home with them,” he says. The final retirement sale was just a “blast” and the Wilkerson sales team made it so very simple and straightforward, says Newton. Would he recommend Wilkerson to others? Absolutely. “They’ve done incredible work,” says Newton. “They feel like family.”
