A Few of My Favorite Things: Jewelry Retailers Tell It

I asked some of my favorite jewelry retailers about the biggest sellers in their respective stores, and picked out some pieces on JCK Marketplace that just might be worth adding to your showcases.


Samuel Gordon Jewelers, Oklahoma City

Tacori bracelet Tacori 18k925 is one of our best sellers. The combination of color mixed with the tone of silver and the warmth of yellow gold is a recipe for an explosion of an eye-catching yet versatile accessory that is suitable for almost any occasion. Having so many options of high-quality, affordable jewelry is the positive feedback we keep getting about 18k925 from our customers. Since we’ve carried the line, people keep coming back to add to their collections. It’s a no-brainer for men looking for something special for the woman who is just starting out all the way to the ‘has everything’ category.” —Daniel Gordon, president

Raymond Lee Jewelers, Boca Raton, Palm Beach Gardens, Boynton Beach, Fla.

Jacob Bryan ring“Our most popular items in store and in the online showroom are our estate and vintage signed pieces by Cartier, Tiffany & Co., and especially VCA [Van Cleef & Arpels]. We also have seen a huge increase in guys shopping for vintage and antique engagement rings, either with large modern stones or Old European cuts, as long as the settings are vintage or antique. We’ve found that the rarer, the better attracts those niche customers looking for really unique pieces.” —Lee Josephson, vice president

Joint Venture Jewelry, Cary, N.C.

Simon Golub green amy ER“This summer, the cool blues and greens have been the biggest hits. Blue topaz seems to remind folks of the beach—fun times, warm sun, friends, and family. Our clients are in vacation mode, often off to the beach, or just back. The green amethyst checkerboard-cut stones are attracting much attention; best sellers seem to be in rings and earrings often set in sterling silver.” —Donna Hankin, proprietor

Union Diamond, Atlanta

“Halo-style engagement rings have always been a favorite here at Union Diamond and it’s easy to see why! They’re an incredible way to boost the size and sparkle of any stone, and who doesn’t want a bigger and more sparkly diamond? But since we’re always telling our customers to ‘just expect more,’ let’s take it a step further. There’s no rule that says the center stone needs to be a diamond. We say go for that sleek and sophisticated black diamond in a dazzling white halo, or celebrity-worthy radiant-cut sparkler. Be bold and make it yours, because the sky is the limit and halo engagement rings are here to stay!” —Tony Rixom, CEO
