Raleigh Jewelry Store Shows Off $1.2M+ Gingerbread House

It features 93.79 carats of diamonds, 51.88 carats of sapphires and aquamarines, and 155 pearls.




A jewelry store in Raleigh, NC, is showing off a nearly $1.3 million gingerbread house that’s decked out in precious stones — and it’s for sale.

The creation at Bailey’s Fine Jewelry features 93.79 carats of diamonds, 51.88 carats of sapphires and aquamarines, and 155 pearls, according to a post on the store’s Facebook page.

⁠”If you’re on the hunt for the most breathtaking holiday decor of all time, this entire creation is FOR SALE and would make the perfect gift for yourself or someone special⁠,” the post stated.

The house was created by Bailey’s and artist Lindsay Deibler, WNCN-TV reports. Deibler was the grand prize winner in the store’s gingerbread house contest last winter.

“I had so much fun designing the house for the contest last year,” Deibler was quoted saying. “As soon as Bailey’s reached out with the idea, I knew it was something I wanted to be a part of. Combining my love of making gingerbread houses with $1 million worth of gorgeous jewels from Bailey’s? What could be better?”

The gingerbread house will be on display through Dec. 8.




Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
