Rochester, NY – For the fourth consecutive year RJO members at the RJO show in Indianapolis, IN, voted RDI Diamonds “Loose Goods Vendor Of The Year” and Aubre Ford as “Sales Person Of The Year” for the second year in a row.

“We at RDI Diamonds have always been dedicated to learning and growing our jeweler’s business and striving to distinguish ourselves by providing access to one of the largest diamond inventories in the world and partnering with retailers with specialized diamond programs, sales training and marketing support,” said Michael Indelicato, CEO of RDI Diamonds. “Continuing to have our hard work recognized keeps us motivated to keep raising the bar on ourselves.”

“As a happy customer of RDI for the last 20 years I knew that they would be a perfect fit for RJO,“ said Joe Koester, owner of Herzog Jeweler. “They understand today’s independent jeweler and they’re so easy to do business with.” Koster was instrumental in helping RDI become a member of the organization seven years ago.

“As recipient of the Retail Jewelers Organization’s prestigious Vendor of the Year award for four straight years, RDI’s growth in RJO continues to climb, “ said Sarah Streb, CEO of RJO. “With generous sponsorship of exclusive programs such as the RJO Next Gen Experience, RDI continues to be a leader in providing additional programming and support to the RJO membership.”

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
