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.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
