Saturday Night Live: Holiday Jewelry from Pandora

This faux commercial, which aired on Saturday Night Live in December 2017, is a pretty brutal takedown of the charm giants. As the narrator intones, “Once you’ve bought her a Pandora bracelet, you can buy her one of these 60-dollar whatevers for every birthday, Mother’s Day and anniversary for the rest of her natural life”, the commercial shows a jewelry-box perspective view of a series of thorougly unexcited women opening their holiday gifts. Ouch.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
