And congratulations to our winner.

Gary Hurdle, sales manager at Casa de Oro in Corpus Christi, TX, is the winner of January’s Gem Quiz. Gary crushed it (excuse the pun — trapiche ruby was the answer) and will soon take proud ownership of a Jewelry Geek t-shirt. Well done, Gary, as well as all this month’s Honorable Mentions for providing the correct answer. Next month’s Gem Quiz will be appearing online soon. Please look out for it.
