The smooth-talker spent two hours setting up his trick.

A slick-talking, well-dressed man walked out of an Atlanta jewelry store with a $28,000 2.15 carat diamond after he sneakily switched it out with a cubic zirconia, Fox 5 Atlanta reports. The article says he did it after spending two hours hobnobbing with sales associates at D. Geller and Son Diamonds, explaining how he was looking for a diamond that could be mounted on a ring for his fiancée. Then, while being shown the diamond, he made the switcheroo and excused himself to smoke a cigarette outside of the store. By the time a sales associate realized that he left a cubic zirconia where the real diamond had been, he had already made his getaway. (Catch the video news report at the link below.)

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
