THIS MONTH in Over the Counter, Kyle Bullock has his mind on the environment.

In the latest episode of his podcast, the owner of Bullock’s Jewelry in Roswell, NM, tells a series of interconnected stories related to efforts big and small to make the jewelry industry more friendly to consumers, local communities and the planet.

These efforts range from the high-profile work of the Diamond Producers Association to promote more responsible diamond mining and production to the almost entirely overlooked efforts of one of Kyle’s own employees, Sherri Clark, who hoards used scraps of paper so they can be re-used in the office.

Kyle asks her why she does this.

“To help the environment,” she says. “And to save money.”

“But paper is cheap!” says Kyle.

“Not to the trees,” Sherri answers.

Can’t argue that. 

The critical message here? Every little bit helps. And no matter what your role in the industry, everybody can do something. Want to know how you can help? Kyle shares some ideas in the podcast.

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.”
