She and her husband, Mick, had a beautiful Binghamton, NY store — The Goldsmith — but in late 2019, the time felt right for retirement. They called Wilkerson. “They’d always been a part of our bridal jewelry selection,” says Gina, “and I felt really good about their quality and service. So, when we were looking for someone to work with us, Wilkerson was a natural.” With the kind of service and support Wilkerson is known for, Gina says their sales consultants made their retirement sale, “successful and quite easy.” You may like WJA Announces 2020 Cindy Edelstein Jewelry Design Scholarship How to Bring Your A Game Into the ‘Next Normal’ WJA Announces 2020 WJA-Gabriel Love Foundation Student Scholarship Promoted Headlines JYE’S International is Seen in All the Best Cases The Sylvie Collection Knows What Women Want Sylvie Collection From Chain to Casting, National Chain Group Does It All National Chain Group Advertisement Latest Trending Videos Big Survey12 hours ago Here’s What Surging Gold Prices Have Meant for Jewelers Press Releases13 hours ago IIJS Virtual 2020, A Game Changer for the Indian Gem & Jewelry Industry Press Releases13 hours ago GJEPC Invites Entries for The Artisan Awards 2021 Big Survey1 week ago The Guy Who Bought 13 Rings, and Other Tales of Serial Engagements Photo Gallery3 days ago 12 Photos That Show Off the Wow Factor at Thollot Diamonds & Fine Jewelry in Colorado Big Survey1 week ago 7 Out of 10 Jewelers Surveyed Said They Do Not Want to Add a Brand Sponsored Content1 week ago A Liquidation Sale during a Pandemic?
