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?

Guess this gem for a chance to win a “Jewelry Geek” T-shirt. Be sure to include your full name and the name and address of your store. The contest winner will be selected from among correct answers to this question.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
