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

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
