The Northern Lights Aren’t the Only Colorful, Mysterious Thing in Norway

I mightn’t sparkle but I look great on a chunky pendant. Who am I?




The Northern Lights Aren’t the Only Colorful, Mysterious Thing in Norway

I TAKE MY NAME from the ancient Greek for those frigid lands beyond the northern frontiers of what was then the known world. To extend the metaphor, it’s not unfair to say I continue to live on the fringes, although of the jewelry world. Despite being the national stone of Norway, where I was first found, my frequent impurities and mottled red/white appearance mean I’m typically cut into cabochons for use in pendants and big rings. To look at me, few would immediately recognize me as the zoisite brother of Tanzanite.

Who am I?



She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
