True Tales: The Ring and the Wart

Published

on

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.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
