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.

Why This Fourth-Generation Jeweler Chose Wilkerson for a Very Special Sale

Parian & Sons of Franklin Lakes, NJ was founded in the early part of the 20th century. But even stores that have successfully made it through the Great Depression, a World War and the Woodstock Generation must come to an end. With no family wanting to continue the tradition, the time was right for Glenn Parian and his wife, Maria, to retire. And what better way to do so than by hiring Wilkerson to help with the store’s liquidation sale. As Glenn puts it, with his credit card machine humming to the tune of up to 200 transactions a day, he couldn’t have done it without Wilkerson. “This is what they do,” he says. “This is what they do for everybody.”
