  • We do an annual Black Friday sale where we put everything that is over a year old on sale that day only for 10% over cost. Great way to move aged inventory and very effective. — Joe T., Lubbock, TX

  • Shefi Diamonds products. — Joseph D., Rotterdam, NY
  • Custom restyling was big — lots of wedding ring updates! We’re seeing a lot of worn-out rings from the “pavé era,” a.k.a. 2010, when manufacturers started selling lightweight mountings to offset the higher gold prices. — Beth C., Dublin, OH
  • Diamond waves and diamond star jewelry by Shula NY have sold multiple times, to the point where we are ordering back stock. — Shula’s jewelry fits our island lifestyle. Rick N., Fernandina Beach, FL
  • It’s been a good month for engagement rings and bands. We’ve done well with Yael Designs in November. — Andrea R., El Dorado Hills, CA
  • Handmade pendants that we made here in the studio. Bought by “artistic types” who consider themselves trendsetters in local fashions. They look for the out-of-the-ordinary designs and demand craftsmanship and real gemstones. — Susan M., Dunedin, FL
  • Shinola, lab-grown diamonds and Ania Haie. — Krystal S., Plymouth, MI

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.”
