Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass.

With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson.

The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
