Here’s the Answer to January’s Gem Quiz

ANOTHER MONTH, ANOTHER garnet. The variety, features — and Gem Quiz potential — of garnets never cease to amaze. Last month it was hydrogrossular garnet, which to a casual observer can look strikingly like jadeite. But Thomas Wiggins of Werkheiser Jewelers in Bethlehem, PA wasn’t to be fooled. He correctly identified our mystery stone and wins this month’s Gem Geek t-shirt. Well done, Tom. And all our other readers who answered correctly. Keep an eye on this space. A new Gem Quiz will be posted soon.

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.”
