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?

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.”
