Established in 1991 with the patronage of the state and private sectors, FACETS Sri Lanka has become the pinnacle event in the industry calendar. Held at the BMICH Sept. 1-4, FACETS Sri Lanka was an impressive showcase of Sri Lanka’s topmost resource. The objective of the exhibition was to strengthen and promote developments in the industry with special focus on its primary resource, Ceylon Sapphires, as well as to boost the sale of gemstones and jewelry products to overseas markets, thereby attracting more international buyers to Sri Lanka and facilitating a level playing field among the different segments of the local gem and jewelry industry.

The show featured specialized exhibits by gem dealers, lapidarists, exporters, wholesalers, manufacturers, and retailers as well as machinery, equipment, tools, laboratory and certification services and educational and training services.

Foreign delegations from Russia, Australia, Oman, India, Vietnam, Malaysia, China and other destinations visited the show. This year the show was overhauled with booth branding, showcase branding, lobby designing and new carpets.

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.”
