True Tales: Definitely Not a $55 Ring

Published

on

A man walked in and wanted to buy a diamond bracelet. I showed him many — stating the prices as “twenty-five hundred, thirty-three hundred, and this one is fifty-five.? He said ?I’ll take that one.? He gave me his charge card and I rang in $5,500 plus tax. The card was declined. I asked him if maybe it was declined because he only had a $5,000 limit? He said: “Five thousand” I thought you said fifty-five!? I answered “Yes, I probably did, but I meant fifty-five hundred!” He said, “I guess I haven’t been in a jewelry store for a long time.” We both laughed, and he left shaking his head.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
