The diamonds for Queen Elizabeth II’s engagement ring came from a tiara belonging to Prince Philip’s mother. Prince Philip designed the square-cut diamond engagement ring with diamond side stones and had it set in platinum. The Queen still wears this ring every day.

The design was first made for Queen Elizabeth II as a gift from King George VI ahead of their state visit to Canada. Ever since that time, the Queen, Duchess Kate, and the Duchess of Cornwall have been pictured wearing it at Canadian events.

A Liquidation Sale during a Pandemic? Wilkerson Showed Them the Way

For 25 years, Stafford Jewelers of Cincinnati, Ohio, was THE place to go for special gifts, engagement diamonds, high-end Swiss watch brands — in other words, the crème de la crème of fine jewelry. But this summer, the Stafford family was ready to retire. So, they chose Wilkerson to help them close up shop. “One of the biggest concerns was having the sale in the middle of COVID,” says Director of Stores Michelle Randle. Wilkerson gave the Stafford team plenty of ideas as well as safety guidelines, which they closely followed. “All of the employees felt safe, the customers coming in the door felt safe and we did a lot of business,” says Randle. How much business? “The inventory flew,” she says. Translation: They sold millions and millions of dollars-worth of merchandise. Randle calls it, “an incredible experience.” Would she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers who are thinking of thinning their inventories or retiring? “Everyone got more than what they expected out of the sale. You have to hire Wilkerson. They’re amazing.”
