Consider Me the Bitcoin of Gemology

All stones tell stories of the past, but few as viscerally as I. Who am I?




Consider Me the Bitcoin of Gemology

PEOPLE HAVE COMPARED me to Bitcoin for the way I lock in “transactions” (of the natural kind) for perpetuity and for all to see — and also possibly for the way my price surged by as much as 1,000 percent between 2011 and 2016. Although not strictly a gemstone (my inclusions are unlike any other stone’s), I have been desired across the ages, from East to the golden West. I was also crucial to the plot of Jurassic Park.

Who am I?



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!”
