True Tales

She Didn’t Believe It Was Her Diamond, But Her Husband Made a Good Point

I worked on a ladies ring with a 1-carat diamond. It was very dirty. I cleaned the item, repaired the prongs, and when she returned, she promptly said that it was not her diamond because her diamond had a large dark spot in the center and the one I returned did not. Her husband asked her why would I take out hers and return a better one than what she had. She was not satisfied and I didn’t have anything to say as the two argued. He apologized. I never heard from them again. Told anonymously to INSTORE’s Big Survey, 2016

A Liquidation Sale during a Pandemic? Wilkerson Showed Them the Way

For 25 years, Stafford Jewelers of Cincinnati, Ohio, was THE place to go for special gifts, engagement diamonds, high-end Swiss watch brands — in other words, the crème de la crème of fine jewelry. But this summer, the Stafford family was ready to retire. So, they chose Wilkerson to help them close up shop. “One of the biggest concerns was having the sale in the middle of COVID,” says Director of Stores Michelle Randle. Wilkerson gave the Stafford team plenty of ideas as well as safety guidelines, which they closely followed. “All of the employees felt safe, the customers coming in the door felt safe and we did a lot of business,” says Randle. How much business? “The inventory flew,” she says. Translation: They sold millions and millions of dollars-worth of merchandise. Randle calls it, “an incredible experience.” Would she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers who are thinking of thinning their inventories or retiring? “Everyone got more than what they expected out of the sale. You have to hire Wilkerson. They’re amazing.”
