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?

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
