The drawings are of vintage designs up to the 1960s.

Hundreds of vintage jewelry sketches will be put on public display for the first time at Sotheby’s London, according to Blouin Art Info. The article says the drawings are “preparatory sketches before items were hand-made by Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels and famous ‘maisons.’” They also “attest to the skills of often anonymous, unsung artists who crafted the look of the Tutti Frutti and Egyptian-style jewels by Cartier.” The exhibition, called “Masters of Design,” features designs from the last century up to the 1960s and come from a private collection of 3,000 jewelry documents.

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.”
