Gem Quiz: I’m a Gem That Comes Alive at Night

I HAVE BEEN CALLED evening stone because of my intense dislike of sunlight — it does the most terrible things to my coloring, which is usually of a most tender and feminine pink hue. Discovered in 1902 in Southern California (a place that is really too warm for my liking), I was named after a particularly distinguished jeweler and mineralogist from Tiffany’s in New York (ah, New York, a much more pleasant clime). My perfect cleavage makes me a challenge for gem cutters, but if they know what they’re doing they can make my deepest colors shine. Yes, colors with an “s” — I am strongly pleochroic.

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!”
