My more traditionally colored family members include some of gemology’s most famous stones.




Unsaturated, Unconventional, Understated But Thoroughly Modern. Who Am I?

I AM A THOROUGHLY modern stone, from my unconventional unsaturated color (somewhere between black and white) to my young admirers and their love of the understated, to my social media-powered emergence in recent years. Among my more illustrious family members are some of gemology’s most famous stones, found in both the British and French Crown jewels. That will likely never be my fate … but I’m just happy to hang with the cool kids.



This Third-Generation Jeweler Was Ready for Retirement. He Called Wilkerson

Retirement is never easy, especially when it means the end to a business that was founded in 1884. But for Laura and Sam Sipe, it was time to put their own needs first. They decided to close J.C. Sipe Jewelers, one of Indianapolis’ most trusted names in fine jewelry, and call Wilkerson. “Laura and I decided the conditions were right,” says Sam. Wilkerson handled every detail in their going-out-of-business sale, from marketing to manning the sales floor. “The main goal was to sell our existing inventory that’s all paid for and turn that into cash for our retirement,” says Sam. “It’s been very, very productive.” Would they recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers who want to enjoy their golden years? Absolutely! “Call Wilkerson,” says Laura. “They can help you achieve your goals so you’ll be able to move into retirement comfortably.”
