THERE’S AN EGYPTIAN legend that when my family made its way to the surface of the earth we passed over a rainbow and in doing so took on all the colors of the spectrum. That worked well for me because not only did I land red, but it’s a glorious lush strawberry red (at my best) that earned me my own moniker — a tribute of sorts to another fine gemstone. Of course, man being man, someone figured he could improve on nature, and I am now often irradiated, something that didn’t go down well in the market in the first few years.

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.”
