These are the real gems

Since early 20th century grocery product peddlers Frank Vernon Skiff and Frank P. Ross saw fit to name their venture The Jewel Tea Company, “chosen because in those days anything special was called a ‘jewel,” we thought it appropriate to resurrect suitable jewelry for our other professionals: Golfers=Links; Pugilists=Rings; Detectives=Watches; Criminals=Chains; Shippers=F.O.B.; Horsemen=Studs; Dairymen=Milky Quartz; Dance Hall Performers=Rosy Quartz; Printers=Agates; Novelists=Aventurine; Surgeons=Blood Stone; Baseball Players=Diamonds; Beverage Marketers=Sodalite; Firemen=Dalmatian Stones; Weathermen=Snow Flake Obsidian; Ghost Busters=Jasper; and finally, The Confidence Man=Pyrite, (Fool’s Gold).
