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

You likely know my name – the tough part is spelling it correctly.

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?

Who am I?

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.”
