5 Things We Never Knew About Henry Dunay

  1. When I was 14 years old, I swam the breaststroke in the Pan American Games.
  2. I once caught 10 piranhas on the Amazon in Bolivia. I never even realized I wanted to go piranha fishing until I got there and did it. Now I’d like to do it again!
  3. I’m a big fan of mystery books and films — not the blood and murder kind, but stories that let you follow the characters as they gather all the details and finally solve the mystery. Sherlock Holmes is one of my favorites.
  4. I’ve done 500-plus scuba dives in places all over the world. I especially loved the Seychelles in the Indian Ocean. The islands are granite, and underwater, the boulders look big and round, like giant potatoes.
  5. My favorite gemstone is padparadscha sapphire. The highest price ever paid for one of my pieces at auction ($450,000) was a ring with a 19-carat oval padparadscha.

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.”
