Here’s the Answer to July’s Gem Quiz

THE GEM QUIZ VENTURED into the obscure fringes of gemology with its mystery stone in July. But the correct answers came pouring in, regardless, led by Kiley Nash of Brinker’s Jewelers in Evansville, IN, who walks away with this month’s Gem Geek t-shirt. Well done everyone who submitted the correct answer – Baddeleyite, a stone with interesting properties but little name recognition. Keep an eye on this space. We’ll have a new Gem Quiz posted soon.

This Third-Generation Jeweler Was Ready for Retirement. He Called Wilkerson

Retirement is never easy, especially when it means the end to a business that was founded in 1884. But for Laura and Sam Sipe, it was time to put their own needs first. They decided to close J.C. Sipe Jewelers, one of Indianapolis’ most trusted names in fine jewelry, and call Wilkerson. “Laura and I decided the conditions were right,” says Sam. Wilkerson handled every detail in their going-out-of-business sale, from marketing to manning the sales floor. “The main goal was to sell our existing inventory that’s all paid for and turn that into cash for our retirement,” says Sam. “It’s been very, very productive.” Would they recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers who want to enjoy their golden years? Absolutely! “Call Wilkerson,” says Laura. “They can help you achieve your goals so you’ll be able to move into retirement comfortably.”
