My Life: Dawn Hendricks

Dawn Hendricks
Peridot Fine Jewelry, Larchmont, NY

Growing up, Dawn Hendricks says she was always the weird kid who wanted to have her own store. She achieved her dream in 2002 but not before exploring both photography and visual merchandising as potential careers. Named one of America’s Coolest Stores in 2015, Peridot specializes in handmade products, especially American-made designs. Her curation process includes meeting personally with each designer. “I can’t support and sell jewelry unless there’s good energy behind it.”

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.”
