True Tales: Saved By the Cuff of My Pants

Published

on

Not too long ago, I re-set a customer’s diamond in a new pendant. I polished it along with six or seven other items and put them in the ultrasonic. Later, when I took them out, her pendant was nowhere to be found. We looked high and low. We took apart the dust collector, the sink, etc. but still no pendant. This was not an overly expensive piece, but let’s face it, no one wants to tell their customer their jewelry was lost. Later that evening, while in the car with my wife. I told her what had happened. She said, “Did you check the cuff of your pants?” I slid my hand into the cuff and, without having to even feel around, put my fingers on something. You guessed it, her pendant. Apparently, when I slid the items I was polishing into the palm of my hand, this pendant missed and fell into the cuff unbeknownst to me. Not only that, it stayed there for the whole day instead of falling out at any number of locations. Just dumb luck? I’m not sure!

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
