I Am the Finest Green Garnet

I AM THE MOST precious of garnets, with a green beauty that almost rivals the best emeralds. My fire and brilliance have inspired allusions to the mighty diamond, while my powers of dispersion are unmatched. I enjoyed a golden age not long after my discovery in the Ural Mountains in the 1860s, and was a favorite of Carl Fabergé and the Russian court. But my star dimmed in the years after World War I as the new Soviet Union withdrew into its own world. Today, I am more likely to hail from Namibia, but it is still as a son of the Russian soil, with horsetail inclusions, that I command the best prices.

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
