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.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
