(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.”

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
