This month’s contest was won by Stephanie Watkins from Marshall Granger Jewelers in Cold Spring, KY.

Spessartite or Spessartine? To us it’s all potatoes and we were happy to accept both (we like to think of ourselves as an inclusive organization.) Our winner this month, Stephanie Watkins from Marshall Granger Jewelers in Cold Spring, KY, prefers the former, as did a small majority of the many, correct responses this month. (Note to self – make Gem Quiz harder in future!) Congratulations, Stephanie, and all our Honorable Mentions who submitted the right answers.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
