THE BIG SURVEY 2017

We had two primary objectives with this year’s Big Survey: to gain fresh insights into what it means to be an American jeweler in 2017, and, given it’s been 10 years since our first such survey, to determine how far jewelers have traveled professionally since 2007. The findings were fascinating. In some areas, it’s as if time hadn’t moved, while in others the changes have been profound. We hope you enjoy the latest installment of this journey as much as we did assembling it.

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.”
