I CAN’T TELL YOU how many times I’ve been mistaken as this or that girl’s best friend (even by experienced jewelers). But no, despite my terrific luster and fire, I am not the Eternal One. I am my own stone, right down to my occasionally radioactive core. To bring out the best in me, especially in a colored form, it’s usually necessary to give me a shot of heat. As a blue stone I am known as Starlite, as a yellow one Hyacinth, as a pale gray one Jargoon. And as a brilliant clear stone that sparkles and dazzles and looks like I belong in an engagement ring … I am just me.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
