This happened about 20 years ago. A young lady comes in to buy a ring for a young man she has only seen at church from afar. Shortly after, a young man comes in with his parents, talks to me about “when you buy a ring for a girl” and buys a diamond engagement ring. You could have floored me when later the young man and woman walk in together to size the ring the woman had bought. She opened an account to pay for the $35 ring, and every month they would come in together. Each time, she would drool over the diamond counter. But there was nothing from him about the ring he bought. Finally, a year later, he comes in and trades in the ring he bought for a larger diamond. He then offers it to her, and she accepts. Over the next 20 years we see them only a few times. Last year, they re-appeared, and since then he has bought her a $2,000 diamond ring, $500 diamond earrings, a $1,200 wedding band for him, and a syn star sapphire ring. She has no idea there was ever the other ring. They are nice, everyday people — no children, two dogs and as happy as clams in an ocean of plankton. — WARREN LAKEIN

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.”
