(PRESS RELEASE) Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Cultured Pearl Association of America (CPAA) is extending the deadline for entries to its 11th Annual International Pearl Design Competition (IPDC). The new deadline for entries is Friday, Dec. 18, 2020.

The live judging portion of the contest routinely happens in a restaurant in New York City during the last week of October. However, because of COVID-19, a lack of a vaccine, and concerns surrounding indoor dining, CPAA does not feel it is safe to for judges and staff to meet in person. CPAA is extending the deadline for entries to Friday, Dec. 18, 2020. At that time, CPAA will determine a safe way to conduct live judging. CPAA apologizes if this move interferes with any plans on the part of entrants, but know that the association is concerned about the safety of individuals who participate in live judging.

A reminder: This year, the cost to enter is $175 for your first two entries. Third entries and beyond (up to five total) are $150 apiece.

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.”
