Some Worship Hardness, But I Am One of Jewelry’s True Delicate Beauties

Let me shine from the ear, away from the collisions common to fingers and the wrist.

THERE ARE THE hard boys like diamond and sapphire who aren’t afraid of going edge to edge with a gemcutter’s saw … and then there are stones like me, who shake and invariably shatter when confronted with that awful, awful violence. It’s why I am much more at home at the ear, away from the potential day-to-day hazards of the wrist and fingers. There, dangling free or studded in the safe surrounds of a soft lobe, I can show off my range of cyan-ese beauty. It’s also why I am used quite rarely in jewelry — few designers want to work with my delicate demeanor.

Who am I?

When Liquidation Is the Best Option, This Legendary Jeweler Chose Wilkerson

George Koueiter & Sons Jewelers, a 65-year old jewelry institution in Grosse Pointe, MI, had always been a mainstay in this suburban Detroit community. But when owners George and Paul Koueiter were ready to retire, they made the decision to close rather than sell. “We decided our best option to do the liquidation sale was Wilkerson,” says Paul Koueiter. The results, says George Koueiter, exceeded expectations and the process was easy. “Wilkerson just kept us in mind,” says George. “They never did anything without asking and whatever they asked us to do was just spot on.”
