True Tales: This Thief’s A Real Rodent



One morning before Christmas, one of our sales associates mentioned that a strand of black pearls was missing. This was a strand that was usually displayed in our window showcase and fell in the price range that did not have to be secured in our vault at night. With the volume of sales that we had experienced during the holiday season, we thought they may have been sold. The bust was redisplayed and nothing more was thought of it. A few days after the New Year one of my associates noticed a hamster leisurely walking beside one of the showcases. After he was caught and returned to the pet store that is located next to us, we found his home. It was nicely decorated with some shredded paper and 60 of the 64 black pearls that had made up the strand. We are not sure where the other four pearls are … and we don’t think we want to know.

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.”
