Demand is strong right now and will not abate, she predicts.

Emily Barber, the jewelry department director for London-based auction house Bonhams, says that colored stones will carry over their momentum from 2015 and continue to be in high demand this year, Blouin ArtInfo reports. “Without a doubt we are seeing the return of the so-called precious stones: emeralds, rubies and sapphires. Demand is very, very strong and record prices are being paid,” she told Blouin ArtInfo. “We are also seeing strong prices being paid for other colored stones like spinel, and we expect to see more demand for this wonderfully colored gemstone this coming year.”

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.”
