The business owner knew he was taking a risk.

BVW Jewelers in Reno, NV, has broken advertising tradition with a new commercial that shows two women getting engaged, the Associated Press reports. The commercial has been playing at movie theaters and on local TV stations, mostly during broadcasts of the Ellen DeGeneres Show, the report adds. “If anything, it was a risk on me being a small business in Nevada,” BVW owner Britten Wolf told the AP. “I love our state but you don’t know how that’s going to hit people here. Being a small business, it takes a few people here and there and you could have some adverse effects.” He does note, however, that the ad has sparked modest criticism to date.

To Generate Funds for a Jeweler’s Move and Remodel, Wilkerson More Than Delivered

Even successful jewelers need a little extra cash to fund expansion plans—especially when there’s inventory on hand that’s ripe for liquidation. For Beaumont, Texas-based jeweler Michael Price, co-owner of Mathews Jewelers, it was the perfect time to call Wilkerson. Price talked to other jewelers as well as vendors for advice during the selection process and decided to go with Wilkerson. And he wasn’t disappointed. When it comes to paying for the move and expansion, Price says the road ahead is clear. “When we close on the next two stores, there’s no worries about finances.”
