Gem Quiz

Here’s the Answer to October’s Gem Quiz

And congratulations to the winner.





RHODOLITES — OUR MYSTERY stone from October — are pretty rare, but not as rare as a double winner in the INSTORE Gem Quiz! Steve Glazer from Bob Richards Jewelers in Germantown, TN, has claimed that honor, becoming only the second person to win our hallowed contest twice, and in doing so adding another much sought-after Gem Geek t-shirt to his wardrobe. Well done, Steve. And well done also to our honorable mentions, who also contributed a correct answer. For everyone else, keep trying and keep watching this space. A new Gem Quiz will follow soon.

It’s Going to Set Us Up Very Nicely for Retirement

You’ve worked hard all your life. And if you’re like most jewelers contemplating retirement, you’re hoping that your going-out-of-business sale will add to your nest egg — with minimal complications. That’s exactly what Doug and Jacki Friedrich, fourth-generation owners of Friedrich Jewelers Inc., of Vernon, Conn., experienced when they selected Wilkerson to run their sale. “Jewelers who are contemplating a sale should go with Wilkerson because of their experience,” says Doug. And with financial goals “exceeding expectations,” the couple can now focus on enjoying the next chapter of their lives. “It’s going to set us up very nicely for retirement,” says Jacki. “The money’s coming in and we have no complaints. It’s been wonderful.”
