(Press Release)
NEW YORK, N.Y. – The 24 Karat Club of the City Of New York will hold its 115th annual Grand Banquet on Jan. 14, 2017, at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel.

While invitations to the banquet are highly sought every year, the 2017 event will be memorable as it is the last one that will be held in the historic Waldorf Astoria grand ballroom before the hotel closes for a three-year renovation project.

The 24 Karat Club Banquet has been held at the Waldorf Astoria since 1913, when the hotel was located at the corner of Fifth Avenue and 34th Street, today the site of the Empire State Building. The 24 Karat Club Banquet is the second-oldest event still running at the hotel. Only the Pennsylvania Society banquet, which dates back to 1899, has an older tenure in the grand ballroom.

More details, including a special entertainment announcement, are coming soon.

Why This Fourth-Generation Jeweler Chose Wilkerson for a Very Special Sale

Parian & Sons of Franklin Lakes, NJ was founded in the early part of the 20th century. But even stores that have successfully made it through the Great Depression, a World War and the Woodstock Generation must come to an end. With no family wanting to continue the tradition, the time was right for Glenn Parian and his wife, Maria, to retire. And what better way to do so than by hiring Wilkerson to help with the store’s liquidation sale. As Glenn puts it, with his credit card machine humming to the tune of up to 200 transactions a day, he couldn’t have done it without Wilkerson. “This is what they do,” he says. “This is what they do for everybody.”
