Spexton -Judges Comments

Published

on

Clifford Pugh: Who knew Tulsa could be so hip? Spexton oozes cool, from the distinctive storefront with block-letter signage to an interior with exposed brick walls and original tin ceiling. Other cool features: A demonstration area where customers can see the work that goes into the handcrafted jewelry and an ad campaign featuring Oklahoma’s hunkiest guys.
 
Tim Malone: The design of this jewelry stores says the store is open for new business concepts and promises shoppers a very nontraditional approach to jewelry and fashion and style.

Michael Whiston: The aesthetics of the interior are matched in the clean modern jewelry that Greg and Nate handcraft. Spexton is also unique in that it creates jewelry that is masculine in design and catered towards men.

Penny Preville: Men often get intimidated walking around a jewelry store, and you can tell that Greg and Nate took this into consideration when designing their store layout. The loft, lounge-like decor creates a relaxed environment, which, no doubt, has made them successful with the male clientele.

Steve Samaras: Tapping into the celebrity market has allowed them to create an effective brand name. By utilizing alternative metals in their custom designs, they have created a template for success via the Internet. Their minimalistic model for interior design also matches their product design, which is very cool.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
