Its strategy for driving up worldwide emerald prices is working.

Gemfields, a colored stone mining company based in London, is aiming to increase demand for its emeralds and rubies by modernizing the colored gemstone trade, The Wall Street Journal reports. According to the article, the company has a large-scale mining operation near Zambia’s border and is “pulling millions of carats of shimmering stones out of the ground every month.” It’s also emulating De Beers’ marketing strategy, which has helped drive 14-fold growth for worldwide emerald prices since 2009. Analysts told WSJ that Gemfields ¬– which totals $170 million in annual revenue and employs about 200 people – is “well positioned to capitalize as the only formal, large-scale producer of rubies and emeralds in the global market.”

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.”
