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.

Put Your Trust in Wilkerson

To do business successfully with anyone, you need a certain “comfort level.” That’s something that Phillips Pitts, owner of two Parris Jewelers stores in Hattiesburg, Miss., said he felt immediately when he first talked to Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes. He was just about to launch an anniversary sale. And he chose Wilkerson to handle all the details — from the marketing to the sales floor. “Rick cared what was going to happen to Parris Jewelers,” says Pitts. “Not just during the sale but after the sale.” Would he recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers contemplating a large-scale sale? Absolutely, says Pitts, who says the results “exceeded their expectations.” His trust in Wilkerson has only grown after the numbers came in. “They were interested in me fulfilling and what I need to fulfill to make my company better.”
