(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.

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.”
