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.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
