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.

Who am I?

Maximize Every Sale with Wilkerson

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
