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.

Maximize Every Sale with Wilkerson

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
