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?

It’s Going to Set Us Up Very Nicely for Retirement

You’ve worked hard all your life. And if you’re like most jewelers contemplating retirement, you’re hoping that your going-out-of-business sale will add to your nest egg — with minimal complications. That’s exactly what Doug and Jacki Friedrich, fourth-generation owners of Friedrich Jewelers Inc., of Vernon, Conn., experienced when they selected Wilkerson to run their sale. “Jewelers who are contemplating a sale should go with Wilkerson because of their experience,” says Doug. And with financial goals “exceeding expectations,” the couple can now focus on enjoying the next chapter of their lives. “It’s going to set us up very nicely for retirement,” says Jacki. “The money’s coming in and we have no complaints. It’s been wonderful.”
