Here’s the Answer to July’s Gem Quiz

SMOKE, MIRRORS AND a general lack of clarity … That description has been flung at Gem Quiz in the past, but it also neatly sums up our mystery stone in July — Smoky quartz. Our clues, however, were good enough for Stuart Tamres, owner of Talles Diamonds and Gold in Bel Air, MD, and he claimed the big prize – a Gem Geek t-shirt. Well done, Stuart, and all our Honorable Mentions, who also correctly identified the highland beauty.

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.”
