True Tales: Dirty Diamond

Published

on

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 Testimonials

Is It Your Time to Enjoy Life? Wilkerson Can Get You There.

Mary and Tim Whalen, owners of Crown Jewelers in Pittsfield, Mass., wanted to enjoy life beyond their business. When they decided to retire and close shop, they asked Wilkerson to handle the sale. As long-time Wilkerson customers, Mary says she knew the company could manage all the details of the liquidation. It was also great to have “fresh eyes” on their business, says Mary, which “worked tremendously for us.” Today, the Whalens are beginning a new adventure but are quick to commend Wilkerson for helping them get there. “You have one chance to get it right,” she says about their retirement sale. “Do it right.”
