Natural Born Beauty I May Not Be, But They Love Me Down in Texas

I NEVER REALLY UNDERSTOOD what the whole Mark McGwire commotion was all about. In my eyes, a thing of beauty is a thing of a beauty whether it’s a small white ball flying into the high seats of Busch Stadium or a dazzling blue gem that once may have been a rather dull colorless silicate. I mean, seriously, if a little performance enhancement doesn’t bother the Geiger counter, why should it bother your customers? And don’t try to tell me rubies, sapphires, diamonds and most of those other big hitters aren’t above a little nip and tuck here, a little juice or heat to get them really looking sharp. I like to think it’s this kind of pragmatism that has made me a star in Texas.

Wilkerson Testimonials

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.”
