Here’s the Answer to March’s Gem Quiz

 our March Gem Quiz was chalcedony, whose ethereal beauty hints at something going on at the micro level and which has enraptured jewelry lovers going back thousands of years. Such charms, however, weren’t too distracting for Dan Scanlan of Jewelry By Designs in Woodbridge, VA, who correctly guessed the answer and claims the big prize — a Gem Geek t-shirt. Well done, Dan, and all our Honorable Mentions, who also provided the right answer. We’ll post a new Gem Quiz soon. Watch this space!

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
