My Rugged, Dark Looks Hint at My Highland Origins

I AM THE ORIGINAL highlander, hauled down from the Cairngorm Mountains some 2,000 years ago to join the ranks of the world’s gemstones. My rugged and dark looks were considered such a good fit with Scotland’s stormy national temperament, I was made that country’s official gemstone (no Googling!). Long used to decorate kilt pins and other Scottish silverware, my popularity has spread in recent years and I’m now employed by jewelry designers from New York to Melbourne.

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
