I Am the Love Child of Unstoppable Force and an Immovable Object.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN a multi-million-ton chunk of speeding interplanetary rock crashes into earth? I happen (at least in those instances where there is considerable silica at the impact zone). There was some speculation when I was first discovered in southern Bohemia in 1786 that I was the scattered leftovers from an ancient bottlemaking plant. Little did they know then of my much more mysterious cosmic origins. I am the only tektite (“space glass”) of gem quality, and according to some traders, the “true kryptonite.”

Who am I?

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.”
