In the End

Tale End: Return of the Blob



This month’s “True Tale” is a real horror story




[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 Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
