If “diamonds are a girl’s best friend,” then Erin Whelan of Cecil’s Fine Jewelry would be a perennial BFF. Whelan can not only sell some ice, she can ring you up (see what we did there?) at the credit card machine and make you laugh. Her customers love her wit and her excellent choice in bling. She says if sarcasm were something to sell, she would sell that too because she has plenty of that to peddle.

ATTRACTION TO CAREER:

I wanted a job where the sky was the limit, I could be surrounded by beautiful things and fabulous people all day and where I could watch people fall in love and start their families.

FAVORITE PART OF YOUR JOB:

My industry is unique in that people don’t need what we have – they come here because they want to. I adore selling items that make people feel unique, beautiful and special. I also love watching proposals, being a part of one of the most special days in people’s lives. 

REMEMBER ME FOR:

Some people are remembered for being sweet, some being kind and some … not so favorably. I’m sure we all have people that might lump us in one or all of those categories but I’m about 99.9 percent sure that when most people hear the name Erin Whelan, they think of sarcasm, humor and jewelry!

PERSON YOU ADMIRE MOST:

My mom. At an age when most people are planning for retirement, she started a whole new career. She has built a legacy that I can carry on with Cecil’s. My mom is the hardest worker I know while still being the most thoughtful and selfless woman I’ve ever had the pleasure to be around. I consider myself lucky if I am even a little bit like her. Beautiful inside and out.
