The Golden Globes, Nothing Day, Handwriting Day and More Calendar Dates to Kickstart the New Year

And for those love stories that don’t end happily ever after: some strategies to mark Divorce Day.




The Golden Globes, Nothing Day, Handwriting Day and More Calendar Dates to Kickstart the New Year

5 Divorce Day, held to mark the first recorded legal divorce in North America (Ann Clark from her absent and adulterous husband in 1643), represents a good opportunity to approach recently divorced women. Jewelers who have done well with “divorce rings” advise listening to these women as they tell their tales and encouraging them to view a redesign as a gift to themselves for surviving a tough period in their lives or simply as a celebration of newfound freedom.

16 National Nothing Day was initiated to give us one day when we don’t have to celebrate anything. A better use for store owners might be to think how they can leverage more “nothing days” to drive traffic. A fun sale like “The Owner’s Away, So We’re Nearly Giving Jewelry Away!” can boost the bottom line nicely.

23 On National Handwriting Day (observed on the birthday of John Hancock), surprise your customers with a personal note written in a neat cursive hand that says you appreciated their business over the holidays.



Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
