“The market for lab-grown diamonds is expanding rapidly,” said Jonathan Goldman, CEO of Frederick Goldman. “We have spent the past year studying how we would enter this business. Our purchase of the Love Earth brand has expedited those plans.

“As an industry, we need to find new and innovative ways to excite the consumer and compete with other discretionary purchases. We believe that lab-grown diamonds are one of those ideas.”

Dan Schneider, founder of Love Earth, has joined Frederick Goldman vice president of sales for the brand.

“I look forward to contributing to the company’s success, providing their retail customers with the lab-grown products, programs and support required to successfully expand their market share,” Schneider said.

Wilkerson Testimonials

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.”
