True Tales: A Jeweler’s Nightmare

funny stories about jewelry

By way of email I sold an item to a long-time client. He loves buying watches for himself and jewelry for his wife. I offered to deliver it to his home and arranged a time with him to stop by. When I got to the house his wife answered the door and looked confused to see me standing there, as he had moved out six months earlier!

Happily, the item in question was a watch safe and not a piece of women’s jewelry. They have a great post-marriage relationship, and he had only moved three blocks away. Still, my heart was racing for some time after.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
