IN THIS SPECIAL HOLIDAY wrap-up episode of Over the Counter, fourth-generation jeweler Kyle Bullock of Bullock’s Jewelry in Roswell, NM, shares some of his favorite stories from the just-concluded holiday season.

These include the tale of a woman whose father brought her a merry Christmas surprise by finishing the payments on a special piece of jewelry that she hadn’t quite paid off on layaway; an anecdote about a small watch repair service, provided for free, that provided a meaningful lesson for a young boy and an unexpected reward for a helpful jeweler; as well as the most memorable holiday sale that took place in Kyle’s own store — an $80 gold rose purchased by an extremely special couple with an inspiring backstory.

Says Kyle: “No matter what stage of the business you’re in, we all have the power to take in these simple, subtle, quiet moments that change people’s lives. We are privy to people’s most important and cherished moments and memories, which is what makes this the greatest business to be in.”

He concludes the podcast with a special wish for all jewelers. “I hope you take time this year and appreciate these moments as they come. May your 2019 be fruitful and blessed.”

Why This Fourth-Generation Jeweler Chose Wilkerson for a Very Special Sale

Parian & Sons of Franklin Lakes, NJ was founded in the early part of the 20th century. But even stores that have successfully made it through the Great Depression, a World War and the Woodstock Generation must come to an end. With no family wanting to continue the tradition, the time was right for Glenn Parian and his wife, Maria, to retire. And what better way to do so than by hiring Wilkerson to help with the store’s liquidation sale. As Glenn puts it, with his credit card machine humming to the tune of up to 200 transactions a day, he couldn’t have done it without Wilkerson. “This is what they do,” he says. “This is what they do for everybody.”
