It really has to be said I’ve been having a moment … that just seems to go on and on and on. I was the “It” stone of 2015 and while Pantone insisted rose quartz was its color of the year in 2016, it was I that was to be seen at all the best Hollywood parties – and increasingly on the hands of young, independent-minded brides. For centuries I was known simply as pink beryl. That changed in 1911 when I was elevated to a gemstone in my own right, and named after a powerful, purple-nosed financier and mineral collector of the time.

Who am I?

Is It Your Time to Enjoy Life? Wilkerson Can Get You There.

Mary and Tim Whalen, owners of Crown Jewelers in Pittsfield, Mass., wanted to enjoy life beyond their business. When they decided to retire and close shop, they asked Wilkerson to handle the sale. As long-time Wilkerson customers, Mary says she knew the company could manage all the details of the liquidation. It was also great to have “fresh eyes” on their business, says Mary, which “worked tremendously for us.” Today, the Whalens are beginning a new adventure but are quick to commend Wilkerson for helping them get there. “You have one chance to get it right,” she says about their retirement sale. “Do it right.”
