2 glasses of wine

A favorite client brought his fiancée in to have her choose her engagement rings. Yes, rings! She chose three. He said, “We want to be different and I want to see some bling on her hand.” He was a bit overexcited and she was a bit overwhelmed, so I sent him up the street to the wine store for a bottle of champagne to celebrate. It gave her a good 20 minutes to decide what she liked and try things on without pressure. When he returned with two very nice bottles of champagne, she was feeling more at ease. — Theresa Peregoy, Classic Facets, Edgewater, CO

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
