Some manufacturers expected more traffic in their booths.

Anthony DeMarco, who covers the fine jewelry industry for Forbes, attended the recent JCK Luxury show in Las Vegas and spoke with a number of exhibitors, some of whom were upbeat while others voiced disappointment. He writes that “the current erratic and changing nature of the jewelry industry led to uncertainty going into Luxury (as well as the other trade shows in Las Vegas held during the first week of June) and resulted in the vacillating outcomes for exhibitors.”

He notes that even though crowds seemed lighter than in previous years, it appeared as though folks were still buying. However, he mentions that at least three established jewelry companies were upset with how the shows went, which have them considering alternatives for next year.

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.”
