The No. 1 Mental Health Issue for Jewelers

RUNNING A JEWELRY store is a tough job. It may help jewelers who have felt the strains of the job to know then that more than half their peers have considered getting professional help (or did seek help) to deal with stress. That’s according to the 2019 Big Survey, which asked jewelers about any mental issues they may have struggled with during their professional careers. Following stress were sleeplessness, depression and anxiety.

Please note that the Big Survey is still open and we are adding new responses as they come in. If you’re a jewelry store owner or manager and would like to take the survey, it can be accessed HERE. Be quick though, we’ll be closing it soon.

(Please note the Big Survey is designed for owners or managers)

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
