A Rare But Shy Beauty, I Prefer the Shadows to the Bright Lights

It doesn’t help that I’m typically too soft for jewelry, but collectors adore me. Who am I?




A Rare But Shy Beauty, I Prefer the Shadows to the Bright Lights

I AM A SENSITIVE soul, too soft to be worn for jewelry and highly averse to light. If I were a French writer, I would have spent my life lying in bed, thinking existential thoughts. But as a much-sought-after collector’s gemstone, I am more likely to be found in a felt-lined tray at Tucson or the mineral section of a museum. Pull back the wraps and my ruby-colored beauty and metallic luster will be revealed. But cover me up quickly or my silver-driven dark side soon begins to take over.



Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
