True Tales: The Ring and the Wart



One day a customer in her mid-40s came in with a wide diamond wedding band on her right hand, which she simply couldn’t get off. I told her we’d have to cut it off and resize it and she could have it back in a week. She begged me to do something now, telling me: “Look, my husband and I are probably getting a divorce and I wanted to see what the ring would look like on my right hand. I can’t get if off. If I come home with it on the right hand, he’ll be suspicious.” She had a small wart on the knuckle of that hand. She told me, “Look, just put some lotion on and it pull like crazy. I got to get it off today.” So I greased her up, wrapped a towel on the ring and pulled hard. Pop! The ring came off … as did the wart. We bandaged her up with alcohol and a Band-Aid. She left. The next day the woman came back in to thank me. She had gone to the doctor to check out her “wart injury”. She told me the doctor said “Nice job. The jeweler saved you $65, which is what I would charged you to remove the wart.”

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.”
