Here’s the Answer to July’s Gem Quiz

We strayed deep into the utilitarian mineral end of gemology last month, but that didn’t stop the most determined rock hounds among our readers from uncovering the answer to our mystery stone – plagioclase feldspar. Well done,  Kim Hatchell, sales manager at Galloway & Moseley in Sumter, SC, for providing the correct answer and winning a Jewelry Geek t-shirt. Congratulations also to the following for making our Honorable Mentions List. Please wear the kudos with pride.

This Third-Generation Jeweler Was Ready for Retirement. He Called Wilkerson

Retirement is never easy, especially when it means the end to a business that was founded in 1884. But for Laura and Sam Sipe, it was time to put their own needs first. They decided to close J.C. Sipe Jewelers, one of Indianapolis’ most trusted names in fine jewelry, and call Wilkerson. “Laura and I decided the conditions were right,” says Sam. Wilkerson handled every detail in their going-out-of-business sale, from marketing to manning the sales floor. “The main goal was to sell our existing inventory that’s all paid for and turn that into cash for our retirement,” says Sam. “It’s been very, very productive.” Would they recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers who want to enjoy their golden years? Absolutely! “Call Wilkerson,” says Laura. “They can help you achieve your goals so you’ll be able to move into retirement comfortably.”
