Worthmore Jewelers and internationally acclaimed watch and leather goods brand Shinola teamed up to host the Made in America Bash — an all-day public entertainment and shopping event held at Worthmore's Midtown location. All proceeds from raffle ticket purchases, as well as 10 percent of all other sales made that day, amounted to a donation of $2,879 that was presented to Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta.
"What’s been your biggest challenge and what have you done to resolve it?"
Dealing with stress and learning that the day is going to end and everything is going to be all right in the morning.
Out of that experience came a determination to actively cater to same-sex couples, a goal Botnick has put into practice as owner and operator of Worthmore Jewelers in Midtown Atlanta, a neighborhood with a large gay community.
From the moment you walk in the door, I feel the Worthmore story is told. From our greeter, Snorkel Sam (my family boxer), approaching our customers to welcome them in, the artwork on the walls, the painted concrete floor, unique merchandise, and our fabulously eclectic 22-person crew, every aspect says Worthmore.
“Being named Jeweler of the Year from the 24 Karat Club on our silver anniversary is truly surreal. It was such an honor to receive this recognition at the banquet in the company of our family, friends and industry leaders.”
"One thing I realized is, as a small business we are so much better qualified to control our environments than the big-box stores. We are in the store each day, watching, listening, and interacting with customers, so any thing we see that needs to be improved on can be immediately addressed."
Jewelers' Circular Keystone (JCK)—the jewelry industry's leading trade publication—recently ranked Worthmore Jewelers No. 3 in their list of Top 50 jewelry retailer stores in the United States. This is the third time Worthmore has been ranked in JCK's top 10.
