(PRESS RELEASE) The Indian Diamond & Colorstone Association hosted its 34th Annual Tucson Awards Gala on Thursday, Feb. 1, honoring Temple St. Clair with the “Designer of the Year” Award.

Shekhar Shah, IDCA’s jt. secretary, hosted the evening.

Temple St. Clair said she was overwhelmed by the honor bestowed upon her. She recounted how 30 years ago she traveled to many cities in India and was inspired by the art, architecture and antiques, which became the starting point of her designing journey.

Benjamin Guttery of Third Coast Gems was invited to speak at the event and shared with the audience how passion for his work was the ruling force in his life. He said that India being a culture that’s adorned with jewelry, every piece and every stone has a story to be told, and Instagram is the platform.

The event ended with some delicious Indian food for dinner.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
