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.

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
