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.”

Wilkerson: “They Feel Like Family”

Newton’s Jewelers in Fort Smith, Ark., was a true institution. But after being at the helm for most of his life, owner (and descendent of the original founder) Kelly Newton decided it was time to retire. He chose Wilkerson to handle the sale. “I’ve known the owners of Wilkerson for a long, long time. I felt at home with them,” he says. The final retirement sale was just a “blast” and the Wilkerson sales team made it so very simple and straightforward, says Newton. Would he recommend Wilkerson to others? Absolutely. “They’ve done incredible work,” says Newton. “They feel like family.”
