Here’s the Answer to June’s Gem Quiz

FROM THE DEPTHS of earth to deepest outer space, you’ve got to hand it to the world’s gems – they always have a good back story. And that was certainly the case with June’s mystery stone – Moldavite – the only tektite of gem quality (although, as one of our astute readers pointed out, Apache tears might have a claim to being on that list of extraterrestrial wonders). David Blitt, the owner of Troy Shoppe Jewellers in Calgary, AB, emerged from the pack to claim the top prize – a Gem Geek t-shirt. Congratulations to David – who, should you be wondering, was getting ready for the Calgary Stampede when he sent us this photo — and all our Honorable Mentions, who also submitted correct answers.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
