$1,000,000 Chess Set Offered for Sale

(PRESS RELEASE) Windsor Jewelers announces that they have one of the most expensive chess sets in the world on display and for sale. The pieces are made of 14 karat yellow and white gold and adorned with gemstones. There is nearly 11 pounds of gold in the set and it took four artists nearly one year to carve the wax models used to cast the pieces. The set was originally commissioned and completed in 1971 and has been in the private collection of only two families since, the set is being sold by the current owner through the original artist.

The set was one of the most popular attractions at the Gemological Institute of America’s Museum, in California when it was on display there. We invite everyone to come in and see this incredible work of art.

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
