(PRESS RELEASE) Mark your Calendar — Accredited Gemologists Association (AGA) announces its annual February gemological education conference, which will be a virtual event.

The 2021 AGA virtual conference will take place Feb. 16 and 17, 2021, and deliver four gemological education sessions over two days, online each day from 8:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. (PST). The event is open to everyone, and attendees can register to participate in both days or single-day sessions.

The conference will feature Industry experts discussing timely topics including a global update on the diamond marketplace, insight into gem pegmatites and their related mineralogy and gemology, results of experimental heat treatments of corundum, and the first-hand account of attending Myanmar’s famed annual trading emporium for gems.

No matter the obstacle, AGA remains committed to providing educational opportunities to our network of loyal AGA members and gem enthusiasts who invest in their knowledge and shape the future of gemology. We look forward to bringing folks together again and hope you will join us.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
