[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]

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
