Here’s the Answer to August’s Gem Quiz

And congratulations to our winner!




Here’s the Answer to August’s Gem Quiz

AUGUST’S MYSTERY STONE was Thulite, named in honor of its northern roots and which is Norway’s national gemstone no less. It thus seemed somewhat apt that our winner — Joseph Korona, co-owner of Korona Jewelry — would also hail from somewhere northern and famously snowy – Buffalo, NY. Well done, Joseph, who scores this month’s Jewelry Geek t-shirt, and all our Honorable Mentions, who also submitted correct answers. Keep an eye on this space. A new Gem Quiz will be posted soon.

This Third-Generation Jeweler Was Ready for Retirement. He Called Wilkerson

Retirement is never easy, especially when it means the end to a business that was founded in 1884. But for Laura and Sam Sipe, it was time to put their own needs first. They decided to close J.C. Sipe Jewelers, one of Indianapolis’ most trusted names in fine jewelry, and call Wilkerson. “Laura and I decided the conditions were right,” says Sam. Wilkerson handled every detail in their going-out-of-business sale, from marketing to manning the sales floor. “The main goal was to sell our existing inventory that’s all paid for and turn that into cash for our retirement,” says Sam. “It’s been very, very productive.” Would they recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers who want to enjoy their golden years? Absolutely! “Call Wilkerson,” says Laura. “They can help you achieve your goals so you’ll be able to move into retirement comfortably.”
