Gem Quiz: You’ll Find This Chuck Norris-Like Gem in Men’s Rings and Hunting Knives

If Chuck Norris were a gemstone-quality piece of ancient reef, he’d be a lot like me: tough, rare and going it alone on a 400-million-year-old beach off the southeastern coast of Alaska. You won’t find me sitting daintily above an engagement ring. No sir. On the rare occasions I make it into polite society, it’s as inlay in a REAL men’s ring or in the handle of a 17-inch hunting knife (preferably one that pulls from a shagreen sheath). Close friends call me that grumpy old fossil. Others who aren’t so intimate call me favosite. But it’s my business name I want you to guess.

Who am I?

Why This Fourth-Generation Jeweler Chose Wilkerson for a Very Special Sale

Parian & Sons of Franklin Lakes, NJ was founded in the early part of the 20th century. But even stores that have successfully made it through the Great Depression, a World War and the Woodstock Generation must come to an end. With no family wanting to continue the tradition, the time was right for Glenn Parian and his wife, Maria, to retire. And what better way to do so than by hiring Wilkerson to help with the store’s liquidation sale. As Glenn puts it, with his credit card machine humming to the tune of up to 200 transactions a day, he couldn’t have done it without Wilkerson. “This is what they do,” he says. “This is what they do for everybody.”
