And the Answer to March’s Gem Quiz Was …

IT’S NO EASY thing breaking through to become jewelry’s latest darling, as Tashmarine – our March mystery stone — can attest. And nor is coming out top of the INSTORE Gem Quiz, which involves battling scores of super smart jewelers and riding the lucky hand of fortune as it dips into the big hat every month. But Jennifer Sabrio, an apprentice jeweler at Pattons Fine Jewelry in Baton Rouge, LA, managed to do all that and she walks away with this month’s grand prize – a Gem Geek T-shirt. Well done, Jennifer, and also all our Honorable Mentions. Keep your eyes on this space. A new Gem Quiz will be posted soon.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
