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

Gone Fishin’ (Thanks to Wilkerson)

Whether you want to go fishing — or enjoy some of the other good things life has to offer — you can take a cue from Jim Adair and choose Wilkerson to run your retirement sale. After 38 years in business, Adair decided it was time to enjoy some free time. His Missoula, Montana store, Adair Jewelers, will stay in business but without him at the helm. It was the perfect opportunity to call in the experts in retirement sales. Adair says he spoke to a lot of people who have done retirement sales to help him make his decision and he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson seemed to have the best set up, the best organization, the most current marketing of any of them,” he says. “If you want to run a successful sale, you have too much money on the line to be screwing around with trying to do it yourself.”
