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 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.”
