INSTORE tanzaniteI am the Jay Gatsby of colored gemstones. A humble brown stone from the poorest continent on earth with an odd, almost extra-terrestrial sounding name, I have risen to the point where you can see me regularly on movie stars and millennials looking to express their individualism. A little heat, a lot of polish, the right accent (I’m thinking a cut that brings out my purplish tinge or sapphire-like blue) and a new name — thanks to a meeting with America’s most storied jeweler — helped make me who I am today: a glorious testimony to reinvention.

Who am I?

Wilkerson Testimonials

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
