Kim Kardashian was a fan before his success on the reality show.

Aldo Orta’s designs had already found their way into the jewelry boxes of Kim Kardashian, Elizabeth Taylor and other Hollywood stars, but his career took another step forward after an appearance on ABC reality show “Shark Tank,” writes Forbes. The article explains that when he appeared on the show seeking funding to launch a mass-market jewelry line, he attracted sizeable bids from two of the “shark” investors, ultimately scoring a deal that allowed him to control 100 percent of his business.

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.
