There are places gemologists fear to tread, but not marketers, which is why I’m sometimes referred to as “chlorite jade”— a name that captures my lovely green nature but misleads on my mineral make-up. Formally, I’m known as “clinochlore,” but if it’s sales you’re after, I recommend yet another name — one that reflects my chatoyancy-inspired resemblance to feathers and evokes divine intervention rather than an industrial cleaner.

Who am I?

To Generate Funds for a Jeweler’s Move and Remodel, Wilkerson More Than Delivered

Even successful jewelers need a little extra cash to fund expansion plans—especially when there’s inventory on hand that’s ripe for liquidation. For Beaumont, Texas-based jeweler Michael Price, co-owner of Mathews Jewelers, it was the perfect time to call Wilkerson. Price talked to other jewelers as well as vendors for advice during the selection process and decided to go with Wilkerson. And he wasn’t disappointed. When it comes to paying for the move and expansion, Price says the road ahead is clear. “When we close on the next two stores, there’s no worries about finances.”
