Here’s the Answer to August’s Gem Quiz

WHEN THE GEM Quiz strays into the more esoteric reaches of the jewelry world it obviously helps to have specialist knowledge. That was the case with last month’s mystery stone – hematite – and our winner Laura Mae, co-owner of Maejean Vintage in Lancaster PA, which primarily deals in antique and estate jewelry: “We love vintage carved intaglio hematite cameo jewelry,” Laura says. Well done, Laura, and our Honorable Mentions. You’re a knowledgeable bunch. We’ll be posting a new Gem Quiz soon. Please look out for it.

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.”
