Who Needs Facets When You Wink, Sparkle and Glow Like I Do

IN A WORLD where geometry and the facet rule supreme and cabochon and organic beauty are synonyms for “budget buy” it is perhaps not surprising it has taken so long for the designer world to appreciate my allure and character. In nature, I am found almost exclusively in muted colors such as white, gray, tan and cream. But with a touch of titanium or other metallic vapor or a dab of dye I sparkle like a slice of the Milky Way, a freshly opened can of caviar or a pot of gold coins. My often misspelled name, one of the more fun sounding in jewelry, comes from the Greek word for a lump, bump or hump. So look at this clump, and who do you see?

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
