White’s Jewelry Closing After 4 Decades in Historic Downtown Rogers

(PRESS RELEASE) ROGERS, AR — Known as the place “where Northwest Arkansas Gets Engaged,” White’s Jewelry in historic downtown Rogers is closing its doors. After 46 years, owner Rick White is retiring to pursue other adventures with his family. To thank customers for their support, the jeweler is conducting a “Going Out of Business Sale” starting Oct. 10, with up to 70% off until everything is sold.

White’s Jewelry is a full service jewelry store that has provided the community with custom design work; jewelry, watch and clock repairs; appraisals and insurance services; and buying gold and estate jewelry from the public.

Among White’s diverse and eclectic offerings, it has a private label couture collection of diamond essential jewelry, including engagement rings, hoop earrings, necklaces and bracelets. It also represents popular engagement ring brands like La Vie, Barkev’s, S. Kashi, and Romance; and fine fashion from Frederic Duclos, Elle, and Allison Kaufman.

Alongside new and estate jewelry and pre-owned Rolex watches in the showcase, visitors also can find original artwork, military uniforms, antique pocket watches, silver coins, even a vintage street lamp from the Mundelein University campus. Like a curio shop, White’s has been a destination for people who want to be delighted and surprised discovering unique and special offerings with every visit.

In fact, White, who has been in the jewelry business since 1968, says his biggest passion is buying things from the public, hearing family stories and handling items of historic significance. He shares that early in his career, before he knew better, he passed the chance to purchase a copy of the Declaration of Independence that turned out to be one of 13 original copies in existence and ultimately sold for $1 million. He also tells of a journalist’s autograph book he sold that included such famous people from the 1800s as Joseph Pultizer, Henry Ford, and American sculptor Vinnie Ream.

White opened his first jewelry store in 1976 in Fayetteville, Arkansas. During that time, he also served as a consultant to what was then the second oldest jewelry store in America, Lemon and Son’s in Louisville, Kentucky (founded 1828). During the course of his career he operated 13 jewelry stores at one time.


Leaving on a high note, with one of his best years in business, White has other pursuits with his three children and 10 grandchildren, as well as a farm to tend to. White is grateful for the support of the community of Northwest Arkansas over the years. “It has been a joy to serve all of our customers.”

White’s Jewelry Going Out of Business Sale begins Monday, Oct. 10 and will continue until everything is sold, at 115 W. Walnut St. Store hours of operation are Monday – Saturday 10am-5:30pm, and closed on Sunday. For more information about the sale visit our Facebook Page here or our website here.



When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
