While I May Be Mistaken For Diamond, I Am My Own Stone

Right down to my occasionally radioactive core.

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.

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.”
