Record-breaking auction sales are continuing unabated as the 5.03-carat “Aurora Green” diamond set two world records this week after Christie’s sold it for $16.8 million ($3.3 million per carat), Forbes writes. The article says that the diamond – “with VS2 clarity mounted on a gold ring surrounded by circular-cut pink diamonds” – was purchased by Hong Kong-based Chow Tai Fook Jewellry. The previous world record for the sale of a green diamond was $8.6 million at $1.5 million per carat.

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.”
