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.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
