  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.

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.”
