Here’s the Answer to November’s Gem Quiz

THE ANSWER TO our November Gem Quiz was prehnite, a lovely if somewhat obscure gemstone that’s often paired with silver and more likely to be found for sale on Etsy than Fifth Avenue. Obscurity, however, didn’t throw off our winner, Tania De Luna from Vierk’s Fine Jewelry in Lafayette, IN, nor our two dozen honorable mentions. Tania scores the Gem Geek t-shirt, but well done everyone. It was a tough one.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
