[h5]THUMBNAIL – CLICK TO ENLARGE GRAPHIC [/h5]

[dropcap cap=Several years ago,] I remember hearing a tale of a young lady who brought all of her jewelry to a jeweler and wanted it all put together into one piece. The jeweler told her she had enough gold, gemstones and diamonds to make many pieces. She insisted she only wanted one. She insisted he put them all together without taking out any of the stone and melt them all together, and she wanted to watch. He explained what would happen to the colored stones and diamonds, but she insisted. When he was finished with the blob, she had a huge smile on her face and wanted it boxed. Her cheating ex wanted back all the jewelry he’d given her, and she was giving it back. [/dropcap]

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
