(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.

Wilkerson Testimonials

A Liquidation Sale during a Pandemic? Wilkerson Showed Them the Way

For 25 years, Stafford Jewelers of Cincinnati, Ohio, was THE place to go for special gifts, engagement diamonds, high-end Swiss watch brands — in other words, the crème de la crème of fine jewelry. But this summer, the Stafford family was ready to retire. So, they chose Wilkerson to help them close up shop. “One of the biggest concerns was having the sale in the middle of COVID,” says Director of Stores Michelle Randle. Wilkerson gave the Stafford team plenty of ideas as well as safety guidelines, which they closely followed. “All of the employees felt safe, the customers coming in the door felt safe and we did a lot of business,” says Randle. How much business? “The inventory flew,” she says. Translation: They sold millions and millions of dollars-worth of merchandise. Randle calls it, “an incredible experience.” Would she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers who are thinking of thinning their inventories or retiring? “Everyone got more than what they expected out of the sale. You have to hire Wilkerson. They’re amazing.”
