True Tales: Get Me Some Gonads!

Published

on

One Saturday, a lady came in, marched up to my husband and announced loudly: “I need a pair of big, beautiful gonads. The darker the purple the better!” There was a moment of absolute silence in the store … one which lasted until one of my sales staffers remembered this customer had been in earlier … looking at our amethyst geode book-ends. She then rushed over to find them, while the rest of us rushed into the back room before exploding with laughter.

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.”
