True Tales: Dirty Diamond



A customer enters our store on Dec. 23, looking for something "different." I show him a .65 point chocolate diamond solitaire in a vintage 14K white gold, white diamond-accented ring. He owns an oil/water well drilling business and looking at the unusual color of the stone, says, "I use diamond drill bits that cost between $15,000 and $50,000 to replace. How much is this gonna cost me?" After giving him a price, and while looking at it under the scope, he says, "Wow… look at that color! I like it! It looks like dirt! I’ll take it!!" — CAROL ORRIS, ORRIS JEWELERS, BRADFORD, PA

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
