Color: Using the Whole Box of Crayons

We are all searching for strategies and products to drive more customers and more business into our stores. Colored gemstones just might be the solution you are looking for. Color is appealing, it is infinitely customizable, it is young and it is old. It can fill any price point and it is bursting with passion. It is complex enough to appeal to your geeks yet sexy enough to excite your romantics. It is current and unique for your millennials and steeped in gravitas for your traditionalists. Why not put more money in your pocket and have fun doing it? Come join Doug Hucker in this seminar as we explore the opportunities to use colored gemstones to add excitement to your business and profits to your bottom line.

Select offers jewelers an opportunity to meet with 63 of the jewelry industry’s top-tier designers and manufacturers. The Select Tucson schedule of February 2-3, Sunday and Monday works perfectly for better retailers coming to town for Tucson’s important gem shows. It will transition seamlessly into the kick-off of the major shows that open on the following day, Tuesday, February 4th such as AGTA GemFair. It does not interfere or overlap with the main Tucson shows. It provides buyers the opportunity to meet with well-known fine jewelry designers and top tier manufacturers before the other shows for better use of their time.

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.”
