Recently, a new customer walked in hoping to have a custom ring made. We browsed through the counters, tried on rings, looked at wax patterns, and I had a good feeling about her. She was so excited and eager that while she had lunch, I sketched a design. She took a look and seemed very relieved! She then shared that she and her grandchildren, who were with her, were so nervous that the estimate would be out of their price range, they had came up with a plan to get her out of the store if she couldn’t afford it. She said she was supposed to fake a heart attack and the grandchildren would usher her out quickly to the car. I have never laughed so hard! Luckily, she loved the design, it was in her price range and they didn’t have to carry out their sneaky plan! I believe I now have an excellent new customer! — Linda McEathron, Design House, Waco, TX

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
