Kirk Kara Launches with Jared

(PRESS RELEASE) LOS ANGELES, CA — Award-winning national bridal jewelry designer Kirk Kara has unveiled a new retail partnership with Jared, the leading off-mall destination specialty retail jeweler in the United States. Beginning April 15th, the renowned brand’s engagement rings and wedding bands will be available for purchase through select Jared stores and on — just in time for spring’s proposal season.

This new partnership allows Jared customers across the country to experience Kirk Kara’s exceptional quality and craftsmanship and gives brides the option of personalizing pieces at the same time. In addition to Kirk Kara’s iconic engagement ring collections, Jared will offer Kirk Kara’s vintage-style rose cut engagement rings and stackable, mix-and-match wedding bands.

“This new venture is an ideal partnership for us to continue to elevate our current bridal offerings and provide customers with handcrafted, well-made wedding and engagement styles,” said Ann Grimmett, vice president of Merchandising at Jared. “Our investment in Kirk Kara reinforces Jared’s commitment to bringing customers’ unique visions to life through the work of trusted artisans and custom design.” Kirk Kara’s key differentiators include:

  • Hand Crafted Creations
    Inspired by the past and reimagined for the present, Kirk Kara’s modern heirlooms are timeless, distinctive, and always made by hand – without exception.
  • Exquisite Detailing Signature handcrafted elements like engraving, filigree and milgrain put Kirk Kara rings in a class of their own. Many of their designs also include gemstone accents for added personality and flair.
  • Customizable Designs
    Respecting the highly personal nature of engagement rings, Kirk Kara makes it possible for brides to tailor existing rings or bands to reflect their vision with the designer’s touch.
  • An Enduring Family Legacy
    The Kirk Kara story spans four generations, multiple continents, and more than 130 years. This family of artists has created beautiful jewels since 1890.

“We are excited to partner with Jared and introduce our handcrafted, award-winning rings to their distinctive guests,” said Angela Karaguezian Kassabian, CEO at Kirk Kara. “Our intricate designs, exceptional craftsmanship, and ability to customize are unrivaled in the industry and will help make the ring shopping experience even more personal and unique.” Retailing between $1,050 and $5,120 MSRP, the collection is comprised of Platinum, 18K and 14K gold options and can be purchased in select U.S. stores or online here.



This Third-Generation Jeweler Was Ready for Retirement. He Called Wilkerson

Retirement is never easy, especially when it means the end to a business that was founded in 1884. But for Laura and Sam Sipe, it was time to put their own needs first. They decided to close J.C. Sipe Jewelers, one of Indianapolis’ most trusted names in fine jewelry, and call Wilkerson. “Laura and I decided the conditions were right,” says Sam. Wilkerson handled every detail in their going-out-of-business sale, from marketing to manning the sales floor. “The main goal was to sell our existing inventory that’s all paid for and turn that into cash for our retirement,” says Sam. “It’s been very, very productive.” Would they recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers who want to enjoy their golden years? Absolutely! “Call Wilkerson,” says Laura. “They can help you achieve your goals so you’ll be able to move into retirement comfortably.”
