ROMANOV REVEAL

Fewer than 20 copies exist of Russia’s Treasure of Diamonds and Precious Stones, a circa 1925-26 record of Russia’s crown jewels, but thanks to the digitization efforts of GIA’s Richard T.

The catalog details 406 of the Romonav dynasty’s legendary bejeweled treasures, including descriptions, black-andwhite photographs, and even an accounting of prices in some sections.

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.”
