5 Things We Never Knew About Henry Dunay

  1. When I was 14 years old, I swam the breaststroke in the Pan American Games.
  2. I once caught 10 piranhas on the Amazon in Bolivia. I never even realized I wanted to go piranha fishing until I got there and did it. Now I’d like to do it again!
  3. I’m a big fan of mystery books and films — not the blood and murder kind, but stories that let you follow the characters as they gather all the details and finally solve the mystery. Sherlock Holmes is one of my favorites.
  4. I’ve done 500-plus scuba dives in places all over the world. I especially loved the Seychelles in the Indian Ocean. The islands are granite, and underwater, the boulders look big and round, like giant potatoes.
  5. My favorite gemstone is padparadscha sapphire. The highest price ever paid for one of my pieces at auction ($450,000) was a ring with a 19-carat oval padparadscha.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
