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.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
