True Tales

These Are All Real Projects Requested of a Jeweler

Some they could do, but one type is out of the question.





“I’ve been asked about several interesting projects. 1. ‘Can you copy my tattoo design into a ring?’ Yes! 2. ‘Can you create a pendant out of my dog’s teeth?’ Yes! 3. ‘I have some old gold to sell you …’ Oh wow, there’s gold teeth in that bag. I’ll take it, I guess. 4. ‘I read about turning ashes into diamonds. Can you do that?’ Not me. 5. ‘Can I borrow jewelry for my rap video/wedding/photoshoot?’ NO!” — Submitted anonymously to the 2021 Big Survey

Wilkerson Testimonials

Is It Your Time to Enjoy Life? Wilkerson Can Get You There.

Mary and Tim Whalen, owners of Crown Jewelers in Pittsfield, Mass., wanted to enjoy life beyond their business. When they decided to retire and close shop, they asked Wilkerson to handle the sale. As long-time Wilkerson customers, Mary says she knew the company could manage all the details of the liquidation. It was also great to have “fresh eyes” on their business, says Mary, which “worked tremendously for us.” Today, the Whalens are beginning a new adventure but are quick to commend Wilkerson for helping them get there. “You have one chance to get it right,” she says about their retirement sale. “Do it right.”
