This Gemstone Sounds Like An Evil Planet or Skin Disease, But It’s Really Quite Delightful

ZIRCON, VARISCITE, AMMOLITE — some gemstones sound more like evil planets or skin diseases than something that could be turned into jewelry. I, too, suffer from a less than romantic name, although it’s probably a car polish that first comes to mind when you hear me mentioned. Still, what my over-literal namers lacked in inspiration I make up for with my emerald-like beauty. At a relatively low cost and readily available since Siberia’s mineral riches began flowing into the market, I make a great choice for earrings. I tend to be a little soft for ring duty — and no one is going to ask why you’re selling industrial agents as center stones.

Who am I?

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
