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



Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
