THE REAL DEAL

1 Lab-grown diamonds
are virtually identical
to the natural variety and
are poised to become more
widely available than ever.
A little tool can make a big
difference in differentiating
between the two. The
Presidium
synthetic diamond
tester sounds an alert when
a Type IIa stone — which is
likely to be man-made — is
placed inside. Both loose
and mounted diamonds can
be tested in the portable
device. kassoy.com.

ON THE CASE

2A boutique’s glittering
jewels deserve a perch
that’s equally dazzling,
especially since snazzy
presentation can’t help but
improve sales. Tecno Display’s
statuesque case gives
precious baubles a fitting
place to reside, with halogen
or LED lighting to keep
them in sharp focus. It measures
74.5 inches tall and 45
inches wide and is available
in brushed gold laminate
plus an array of standard
and custom finishes.tecnodisplay.com.

PRICE: from $2,835

3 Jewelry doesn’t always
require a flashy backdrop
to shine. Rio Grande’s
burlap-covered display adds
a warm, down-to-earth
charm to showing bracelets
or watches. The neutral
color will fit in with any
store’s color scheme and the
nubby, textured material
complements décor from
bohemian to rustic-chic.riogrande.com

PRICE: starting from $26.48


COLORING BOOK

4 Anyone who saw a web
meme involving a blue
and black dress (or was it
white and gold? …) knows
judging colors is subjective.
That can spell trouble when
talking gemstones with
a client or colleague. The
World of Color Communication
System for
Gem-World International helps
eliminate ambiguity. The
kit includes a master comparison
book of colors, plus
a gem crown and supplemental
book with charts to
simplify describing, grading
and pricing colored stones. gemguide.com.

CAN’T BE BEAT

5 Fretz’s hammer line
has a loyal — some
would say fanatical — following.
To ensure its quality
tools are widely available
(and to keep low-quality
copycats at bay), the brand
introduced the Maker
line, which delivers the
same performance as the
premium collection but
at a lower price, thanks to
handles in a different wood
and slightly redesigned
heads. Buying a five-piece
set of Precionsmith Maker
hammers only multiplies
the savings.ottofrei.com.

PRICE: $135

Wilkerson Testimonials

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
