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.

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.”
