So Beautiful, They Name Daughters After Me

With my impurities and inclusions, I am sublime imperfection.




So Beautiful, They Name Daughters After Me

WE CALL OURSELVES the Women’s League of Extraordinary Gemstones – amber, beryl, jade, opal, pearl and me, covering a glorious range of the gemological spectrum and stunning enough to inspire people to name their daughters (or their beloved cocker spaniel) after us. Yet it is I who shine brightest among them all: the most extraordinary of the lot. The big red one. A cardinal gemstone. Sublime imperfection (in my natural state). Can you hang a name on me?

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.”
