TIME FOR JEWELRY

Detroit-based watch brand Shinola , with its classic timepieces and accessories, has gone a long way toward giving USA-made products a fashionable profile, not to mention bringing jobs to the Midwestern city. It doesn’t hurt that its creative team includes supermodel Carolyn Murphy and powerhouse designers Richard Lambertson and John Truex. The dream team has just gotten bigger thanks to a new collaboration with jewelry designer Pamela Love. She’ll create the label’s first fine jewelry line, which will debut in November of this year.

If sci-fi flicks involving disposable eyewear are the only things that spring to mind when you think 3-D, a conversation with Blue Mountings might be in order. The company will do 3-D wax printing of CAD renderings or will cast a CAD rendering after creating a 3-D wax.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
