(PRESS RELEASE) The GIA Cultured Pearl Classification Report is an abbreviated report that provides classification information on unmodified cultured pearls. This dossier-sized report includes a detailed classification of the submitted pearl(s) based on the GIA 7 Pearl Value FactorsTM as well as a digital image of the submitted item(s). It is specifically and exclusively for the three major types of cultured pearls (Akoya, South Sea and Tahitian pearls), with no identification or advanced testing of the pearl(s) being performed. If a pearl is found by GIA gemologists as being modified by treatment (except routine processes) or as not belonging to one of the accepted pearl types, the pearl service will automatically change to a pearl identification report. Submitted pearls may be loose, mounted, strung, or in a fixed design layout for a strand or jewelry item.

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.”
