Last Laugh: Chuck Kuba

A woman and her husband are having dinner at an expensive restaurant when she informs him she hired a private detective and she knows all about his affair. Furthermore, she wants a divorce. The guy casually agrees and says they’ll have to sell off everything to split assets and that includes her new, 5-carat diamond solitaire ring. You could hear a pin drop. Suddenly, she blurts out, “Isn’t that Bill over there? And who’s that woman he’s with? That’s not his wife.” Her husband replies, “No, that’s Bill’s mistress.” The wife thinks a minute and says, “Well, she’s not nearly as pretty as ours!”

“I am grateful to find somebody who appreciates my sense of humor. Thanks INSTORE!” says Chuck Kuba, owner of Iowa Diamond in Des Moines. Kuba has a bachelor of arts degree in nonprofit management (he’s aware of the irony) and a family history in the jewelry business. In 2007, Inc. Magazine chose Iowa Diamond for the Inc. 5,000 as one of the fastest-growing independent companies in the U.S. But Kuba finds time to relax, too. He plays bass in a number of ensembles, including the Iowa Diamondtaires, the store’s in-house band.

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!”
