Diamonds Are Mostly Out of Africa, I’m Out of Connecticut. But We Still Have Much in Common

I AM WHITE AND bright, clean and clear — all the attributes usually associated with diamond, yet I have none of the … let’s say “provenance” of the king of gems. My history as a gemstone dates back to 1839, when I was discovered in a small Connecticut town that would serve as inspiration for my name. Jewelry lovers like me because I provide a big, white, classic look that can be worn with just about anything. And, oh yes, at about $50 a carat, I’m quite a bit cheaper than the big D.

Who am I?

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
