This Gem’s Name Is a Tribute to Another Luscious Red Stone

THERE’S AN EGYPTIAN legend that when my family made its way to the surface of the earth we passed over a rainbow and in doing so took on all the colors of the spectrum. That worked well for me because not only did I land red, but it’s a glorious lush strawberry red (at my best) that earned me my own moniker — a tribute of sorts to another fine gemstone. Of course, man being man, someone figured he could improve on nature, and I am now often irradiated, something that didn’t go down well in the market in the first few years.

Who am I?

Wilkerson Testimonials

Is It Your Time to Enjoy Life? Wilkerson Can Get You There.

Mary and Tim Whalen, owners of Crown Jewelers in Pittsfield, Mass., wanted to enjoy life beyond their business. When they decided to retire and close shop, they asked Wilkerson to handle the sale. As long-time Wilkerson customers, Mary says she knew the company could manage all the details of the liquidation. It was also great to have “fresh eyes” on their business, says Mary, which “worked tremendously for us.” Today, the Whalens are beginning a new adventure but are quick to commend Wilkerson for helping them get there. “You have one chance to get it right,” she says about their retirement sale. “Do it right.”
