Kyanite crystals

KAREN KUHN OF Arabesque Jewelers in High Ridge, MO, was the winner of our April Gem Quiz, correctly guessing our mystery stone of the month – the lovely but reserved beauty that is kyanite. Congratulations, Karen, who scores a Gem Geek t-shirt as her prize. And well done too to our 28 honorable mentions, who also got the correct answer but no cigar. Kyanite isn’t used that often in jewelry, so give yourselves all a consoling slap on the back. We’ll be giving away another t-shirt next month. Watch this space.

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.”
