Takat to Unveil 44-Carat ‘Divinity Emerald’

divinityemerald(Press Release) NEW YORK — Takat is unveiling a 44-carat emerald at the JCK Luxury show in Las Vegas this year.

The gemstone consists of fine quality Colombian material from the Muzo mine. It has a rich and even color and only minor oil — an already rare combination.

With a perfect emerald cut and a big face-up appearance, the stone would command attention based on its quality alone. 

Christopher Smith, president of the American Gemological Laboratories, said: “This remarkable gemstone possesses a cut and finish that instills an overall charm that is difficult to quantify, yet accentuates its appeal and exclusivity. Such a combination of quality factors, large size, absence of treatment, and origin determination, as present in this exceptional Colombian emerald is very rare.”

Takat acquired the stone directly from the manufacturer and in the process of refining the stone to improve the life and symmetry made an extraordinary discovery about one of its inclusions. Inclusions in emeralds are typically formed in fissures and veils creating a garden-like appearance. This stone, however, has a distinctive black inclusion in the center of the stone that is a precise representation of the Arabic symbol for Allah. It is this “mark of God” that inspired the name of the stone: “The Divinity Emerald.” So extraordinary is this inclusion that GIA has seen fit to do its own independent write-up on the piece, to be released in June.

Takat CEO Rayaz Takat said: “To have such a classic Arabic symbol of the Muslim faith that expresses God in the Arabic language, the creator of the universe and the judge of humankind, is a once-in-a-lifetime find. While Takat has handled some of the finest gemstones on Earth, this particular stone inspires special reverence.”

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
