Here’s the Answer to February’s Gem Quiz

MOST GEMSTONES SEEK to show beauty in a single color. Not Spectrolite, our mystery stone in February. As its name suggests, it’s a rainbow riot of colors – nothing less than the full spectrum. Well done to Laura Lehnerfrom Lammons Fine Jewelry in Oxford, MS, who deduced the answer. She now gets to peacock around in one of our Gem Geek t-shirts. Congratulations also to our honorary mentions listed below who also submitted correct answers – they can also peacock proudly, although they’ll have to do it in an old tee. Thanks, everyone who participated. A new Gem Quiz will be posted soon.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
