Reno Retailer Erica Tague Talks Dream Destination, Biggest Challenge and the Worst Thing About Working with Family 
Erica Tague Michael & Son’s Jewelry, Reno, NV

Erica Tague is a third-generation jeweler working with her parents, David and Shannon Lorenz, in the business founded by her grandparents, Michael and Mary Lorenz. “Family is very important to me and jewelry is my passion,” Erica says. “I also love being active: hiking, CrossFit, soccer.”


If I were a gemstone … 

I would be a diamond because I’m brilliant, colorful and sparkly. 

My ideal day off …

Would start with a massage and pedi then end with spending the day on a beach in Tahoe!

My biggest challenge at work is … 

Communication. I either talk way too much or not at all. 

What I like being in the jewelry business the most is … 

The feeeling after you make a sale! You sold a piece of jewelry that someone is going to cherish for years and years. What other industry offers that? 

The best thing about working with my family is … 

Having a solid support system that is willing to help you grow while learning important life lessons.

The worst thing about working with my family is … 

That work tends to never stop. We always seem to talk about the store. 

The travel destination at the top of my bucket list is … 

Sweden. It looks so pretty and that’s where my family originates from.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
