KATHY JENKINS FROM Bravo Jewellers in Carlsbad, CA was the winner of our February Gem Quiz and she couldn’t be better credentialed. Nope, we’re not talking about her GIA GG, AJP, JDT certifications but the fact she’s from California, official home to our mystery gem – benitoite. Even better, she’s actually been to the mine to dig it up. Sorry, everyone else, you never had a chance.

Well done, everyone who got the answer right (see our list below) and a special thank you to Christina Grande from Richters Jewelry in Londonderry, NH, who correctly noted the photo we used in the magazine in February wasn’t benitoite. (As we said, you never really had a chance.) Apologies to anyone who was confused.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Why This Fourth-Generation Jeweler Chose Wilkerson for a Very Special Sale

Parian & Sons of Franklin Lakes, NJ was founded in the early part of the 20th century. But even stores that have successfully made it through the Great Depression, a World War and the Woodstock Generation must come to an end. With no family wanting to continue the tradition, the time was right for Glenn Parian and his wife, Maria, to retire. And what better way to do so than by hiring Wilkerson to help with the store’s liquidation sale. As Glenn puts it, with his credit card machine humming to the tune of up to 200 transactions a day, he couldn’t have done it without Wilkerson. “This is what they do,” he says. “This is what they do for everybody.”
