Gem Quiz

Here’s the Answer to August’s Gem Quiz

And congratulations to the winner.




OUR MYSTERY GEMSTONE in August was Paraiba tourmaline, a favorite of many jewelers and we’re guessing most of them could identify it from sight at several paces. (Who needs clues!) The result was a huge number of correct responses but it was Gina Wiese Dill’s name that called out from the hat, and she scores this month’s Gem Geek T-shirt. Well done, Gina, who owns Kinne’s Jewelers in Gainesville, TX. And also all of August’s Honorable Mentions. A new Gem Quiz is coming soon. Watch this space!

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
