Make it about the joy

Jerry Lindsey, Jerry Lindsey Custom Jewelry, Franklin, TN


I do what I do, because I love to see the joy on my customer’s face when handed a new piece of jewelry. It’s not about the money. It’s not about my reputation. It’s about that customer, standing in front of me, at that moment. That joy is why I do it. It’s why I get up before the crack of dawn, to come in and cast platinum. It’s why I carry my laptop home at night so I can easily design a ring for a new customer. That’s why I create jewelry and then take it apart and re-do it so I can create the perfect piece. I’ve learned that when I tried to make it about the money, jewelry became a job. And that’s not fun. Life is too short to concentrate on numbers or attracting new customers. When I make it about the joy, my excited customers tell their friends and new people come to me.

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
