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

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
