Here’s the Answer to December’s Gem Quiz

And congratulations to our winner.

Derrick Allen, the winner of our latest Gem Quiz, admits the stone in question had puzzled him long before he picked up the December copy of INSTORE. “What I thought was turquoise for the longest time, was actually hemimorphite,” he explained, adding that it’s not a gemstone that is seen often, “but it’s always a treat” when it does cross his path. Congratulations to Derrick, a jewelry consultant at Graham Jewelers in Wayzata, MN, who wins this month’s “Jewelry Geek” T-shirt. And also to all this month’s Honorable Mentions for providing the correct answer. Well done, everyone.

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.”
