True Tales: You Request It, We’ll Make It

We had a local radio host come in with a request that since we create our own designs in 3-D could we design a ring with his voice pattern saying “I Love You” into a diamond and sapphire ring. And we did it and went on his show to tell our story. — Joseph Delefano, Regency Jewelers, Rotterdam, NY


We once made a set of poison-style rings with the deceased father’s picture on one side of the lid, a lock of his hair in the bottom and a glass crystal over it. That darn hair was sooo curly we had a hard time winding it up to put into the rings, even with hair spray. — Karen Fitzpatrick, Harris Jewelers, Rio Ranch, NM

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
