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

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
