OCCOQUAN, VA – Terence Quinn, owner and president of Quinn’s Goldsmith Inc., won first place for the third year in a row at a custom design competition held at the Independent Jewelers Organization (IJO) Conference in Orlando, FL. Quinn won one first-place award and two second-place awards for his Quinn’s Creations jewelry that were entered into the contest this year.

“To be recognized by my peers is an incredible honor. IJO has over 800 members from the United States and Canada. Approximately 100 entries were submitted for the design contest,” says Quinn.

The first-place award came for his eight carat oval sapphire with two carats of diamonds set in 14KT white gold pendant (pictured). He also won two second-place Awards for a 14KT white and yellow gold hand carved pink tourmaline and diamond pendant, and a two-tone super nova diamond and ruby pendant.

In the last three years, Terry Quinn has won a total of nine awards, five of which are first-place Awards for his designs in competitions. Quinn’s award-winning designs are now sold as limited edition pieces in 22 stores across the United States.

Quinn’s Goldsmith is a full-service jewelry store focusing on custom designs. It reached a milestone in August of 2015 by celebrating 25 years in business in Historic Occoquan, VA.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
