Some Worship Hardness, But I Am One of Jewelry’s True Delicate Beauties

THERE ARE THE hard boys like diamond and sapphire who aren’t afraid of going edge to edge with a gemcutter’s saw … and then there are stones like me, who shake and invariably shatter when confronted with that awful, awful violence. It’s why I am much more at home at the ear, away from the potential day-to-day hazards of the wrist and fingers. There, dangling free or studded in the safe surrounds of a soft lobe, I can show off my range of cyan-ese beauty. It’s also why I am used quite rarely in jewelry — few designers want to work with my delicate demeanor.

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.”
