Did Someone Say Crypto? I’ve Been Shining for Years

The boho crowd helped fuel my latest resurgence.




Did Someone Say Crypto? I’ve Been Shining for Years

I AM A CRYPTOCRYSTALLINE variety of quartz, made up of a weave of microscopic crystals that allows me to glow with a translucent light. While there are a number of gemstones from carnelian to onyx that have the same structure and hence, in theory, can use my name, mention me to a jeweler and he’ll reach for the good stuff, the “actual” gem that has a history in adornment going back thousands of years.

Thinking of Liquidating? Wilkerson’s Got You Covered

Bil Holehan, the manager of Julianna’s Fine Jewelry in Corte Madera, Calif., decided to go on to the next chapter of his life when the store’s owner and namesake told him she was set to retire. Before they left, Holehan says they decided to liquidate some of the store’s aging inventory. They chose Wilkerson for the sale. Why? “Friends had done their sales with Wilkerson and they were very satisfied,” says Holehan. He’d enthusiastically recommend Wilkerson to anyone looking to stage a liquidation or going-out-of-business sale. “There were no surprises,” he says. “They were very professional in their assessment of our store, what we could expect from the sale and they were very detailed in their projections. They were pretty much on the money.”
