(PRESS RELEASE) On February 6, 2020, Fortuna held its first sale of the new decade. The Fine Jewels sale offered a well-rounded selection of fine estate diamond jewelry and designer pieces, and achieved a nearly 70% sell-through rate.

The sale brought in bidders and consigners from around the world, featuring items consigned from countries like Spain, and bids coming all the way from Kuwait. It was also the first of Fortuna’s auctions to be streamed live on Facebook.

Among the sale highlights sold was a 4.13-Carat Emerald-Cut Loose Diamond. This fine diamond came accompanied by a GIA diamond report stating the stone as possessing G color and VVS1 clarity. The diamond achieved $40,625 at auction.

The sale also featured rarely seen designs, like that of a Tiffany & Co. Aquamarine Morganite and Diamond Drop Necklace. The piece had never been worn and was in excellent condition. The stunning lot which was crafted in platinum in a spectacular cascading design, achieved $30,000 at auction — more than double its starting bid.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
