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

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
