Light says traders tried to lower stock value by publicizing diamond-swapping complaints

Signet Jewelers CEO Mark Light claims that short sellers launched a “targeted attack” to bring down the company’s stock price, according to a Bloomberg report cited by Rapaport. The article notes that Signet’s stock price has fallen by more than 20 percent since a recent Buzzfeed report quoted customers of Kay Jewelers, a Signet subsidiary, and alleged that their diamonds were swapped out for lower-quality gems.

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.”
