This Holiday Season, Put a Gemstone in a Cookie

For a really impressive Christmas cookie, how about one containing a gem inside? A British online retailer, veryfirstto.com, did this last year with 3-carat diamonds (price tag for the set: 995,000 pounds), but we think less precious gems (garnets, topaz, amethyst or even aquamarines) could work just as well. Gather up all those loose stones you’ve got in a jar in the shop and order your own custom-made store-branded cookies. Sell them in sets of 12.

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.”
