Who Needs Facets When You Wink, Sparkle and Glow Like I Do

IN A WORLD where geometry and the facet rule supreme and cabochon and organic beauty are synonyms for “budget buy” it is perhaps not surprising it has taken so long for the designer world to appreciate my allure and character. In nature, I am found almost exclusively in muted colors such as white, gray, tan and cream. But with a touch of titanium or other metallic vapor or a dab of dye I sparkle like a slice of the Milky Way, a freshly opened can of caviar or a pot of gold coins. My often misspelled name, one of the more fun sounding in jewelry, comes from the Greek word for a lump, bump or hump. So look at this clump, and who do you see?

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.”
