This happened about 20 years ago. A young lady comes in to buy a ring for a young man she has only seen at church from afar. Shortly after, a young man comes in with his parents, talks to me about “when you buy a ring for a girl” and buys a diamond engagement ring. You could have floored me when later the young man and woman walk in together to size the ring the woman had bought. She opened an account to pay for the $35 ring, and every month they would come in together. Each time, she would drool over the diamond counter. But there was nothing from him about the ring he bought. Finally, a year later, he comes in and trades in the ring he bought for a larger diamond. He then offers it to her, and she accepts. Over the next 20 years we see them only a few times. Last year, they re-appeared, and since then he has bought her a $2,000 diamond ring, $500 diamond earrings, a $1,200 wedding band for him, and a syn star sapphire ring. She has no idea there was ever the other ring. They are nice, everyday people — no children, two dogs and as happy as clams in an ocean of plankton. — WARREN LAKEIN

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!”
