(PRESS RELEASE) The Plumb Club announces the addition of Wilkerson and CH Hakimi as members. These two companies will complement the association’s nearly 50 members representing over 100 brands and will join the other important companies that exhibit in the Plumb Club Pavilion at the JCK Las Vegas Show.  

Wilkerson is based in Stuttgart, AR, and has been involved in the jewelry industry for over 47 years. Wilkerson Express, the jewelry division of Wilkerson, offers well-priced delivery merchandise sourced from around the world. In addition, a warranty and exchange program are provided. Wilkerson is also the exclusive distributer of John Bagley Bridal and Silver Inlay collections. Each collection is an adventure of passion, intensity and desire, and is a process of continuous exploration.

“Two years ago, we started researching what the Plumb Club’s vision was and we discovered it was leadership, adding value and impacting the jewelry industry in a positive manner. We cannot be more proud and excited to be part of this organization!” said Russ Whitehouse, Wilkerson’s director of operations.

CH Hakimi is a family business located in Great Neck, NY. Established in 1979, it made its mark in the world of precious gemstones as one of the first marketers of Tanzanite to the jewelry industry. Today, its reputation globally for integrity, reliability and quality has enabled it to become one of the largest producers of fine diamond and gemstone jewelry in the industry. As a private label for major brands, its jewelry is worn by gem connoisseurs as well as the everyday woman.

Matt Hakimi said, “Our success throughout the years is completely owed to our father who paved the road and taught us that the finest piece of jewelry is worthless if you don’t back it up with integrity and honesty in the workplace. The Plumb Club members exemplify these core values and we are excited to join them.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
