(Press Release) “Worldwide Business with kathy ireland” announces an exclusive interview with Naomi Sarna, an award-winning designer and sculptor of precious colored gems.

BJ Hackman, past president of the American Gem Trade Association, said Sarna “is creating pieces that no one else in the trade has done in the past.” He adds: “Naomi is probably the best carver of gemstones worldwide.”

To date, her work has garnered 27 awards internationally and is a part of the Smithsonian Institute’s Permanent American Gems Collection. Sarna’s works are acquired by discriminating art-collectors who enjoy presenting and wearing her unique pieces.

Sarna went to Tanzania to pick a crystal for an international competition. This became her L’Heure Bleu, the world’s largest top-color tanzanite carving. At that time, she began the first of several visits to Tanzania to teach the Maasai women to make jewelry to sell in shops so as to raise them out of poverty. Sarna took notice of the number of women who had cataracts and were unable to perform basic tasks due to the lack of eyeglasses and eye care.

Millions are deprived of basic eye care, because of poverty, isolation and disease. Her work is literally eye-catching and her desire is to help the Maasai see and thereby earn a living. The sale of Sarna’s $500,000 award-winning tanzanite carving, L’Heure Bleu, will benefit the eyecare of the Maasai women who live and work at the source of this jewel.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
