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

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 Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
