America's Coolest Stores

Patronik Designs and Jewelry Gallery -Judges Comments



Steve Samaras: After going through their own Greek tragedy in a devastating fire, the owners are an inspiration in their commitment and dedication to meeting and servicing their customers. The interior design represents a level of creativity that would make their ancestors proud!

Clifford Pugh: This store has the niftiest custom light fixtures I’ve ever seen. The storefront, marked with a copper and stainless steel awning and corbels that resemble jewelry detailing is way cool, too.
Penny Preville:
The art of jewelry making often goes unnoticed. As a designer, I think it’s wonderful that the setup of the store allows the customers to see the jeweler at work.

Michael Whiston: The architectural layout and design Patronik Jewelry really make for a unique retail experience. The designers of this store have taken a narrow and small space and created contemporary vertical sleek display cases and wall niches. Custom fabricated modern light fixtures and chandeliers add to the space’s modern look. The stores exterior fa?ade is clean and fashionable with custom brass and chrome metalwork entry features that really catch the eye and draw people into this distinctive shop.

Tim Malone: Forget about the boring look of horizontal display cases stacked up next to each other. This store is all about visual excitement. Through vertical displays, museum-style cases cause shoppers to stop dead in their tracks as they move from one to another.



Wilkerson Testimonials

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.”
