Canada-based jewelry retailer Spence Diamonds has announced plans to expand into the U.S.
market with stores opening in Austin, TX, on Nov. 7 and in San Jose, CA, on Nov. 10.

The company will open in Scottsdale, AZ, in the first quarter of 2017 and will soon announce additional markets, according to a press release.

The retailer calls itself a “jewelry disruptor” in part because of its line of “Spence Artisan Created Diamonds.”

“We have reimagined the experience of the diamond business by creating an environment that is open, bright and transparent,” said Jim Schneider, president of Spence Diamonds. “Watching a diamond being created from a ball of plasma while exploring jewelry in open cases without the traditional barriers is a refreshing concept.”

The stores will also sell traditional mined diamonds.

The company, founded in 1978, said it “has secured prime retail locations with high foot traffic including Santana Row in San Jose and The Domain in Austin.”

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.”
