Necklaces are jewelry’s most elegant embrace.

NECKLACES ARE TRULY THE EASIEST FORM OF JEWELRY: They don’t require sizing, piercing or careful placement and they never get in the way of your hands. A necklace can be anything you want it to be, from a subtle pendant tucked beneath your sweater to a daring, dangling declaration dripping in diamonds.

Playful Pioneers

These necklaces know the rules, they just don’t care. These curving collars and far-flung strands still seek to decorate the wearer’s décolletage, but with loose ends and unconstrained enthusiasm that will appeal to the shopper whose heart harbors a little extra wildness.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Texas Jeweler Knew He'd Get Only One Shot at a GOB Sale, So He Wanted to Make It Count

Most retailers only have one GOB sale in their lifetimes. This was the case for Gary Zoet, owner of Shannon Fine Jewelry in Houston, Texas. “Wilkerson has done thousands of these sales,” says Zoet. “I’ve never done one, so it’s logical to have somebody with experience do it.” The result exceeded Zoet’s expectations. Wilkerson took care of everything from marketing to paperwork. When it’s time for you to consider the same, shouldn’t you trust the experts in liquidation?

How Diamond Necklaces Heated Up the Golden Globes Red Carpet

Drop necklaces and chokers dominated.

mm

Published

on

AT THE 76TH ANNUAL Golden Globe Awards, the diamond necklaces gracing A-list actresses’ necks ran the gamut from the high drama of the Tiffany & Co. drop necklace worn by Lada Gaga to antique-inspired styles like the delicate bow and garland Beladora look worn by Dakota Fanning. Chokers made a comeback as well, from geometric forms such as the Cartier stunner Rachel Weisz wore and the wide diamond Bulgari collar on Kiki Layne to the more delicate Messika diamond choker adorning Constance Wu’s neck. Why not inspire your customers to invest in a similar
statement-making style, within their budget?

AT THE WORLD PREMIERE of Mary Poppins Returns in Los Angeles, Emily Blunt looked ethereal in a diaphanous white gown, accessorized by Stephen Webster chandelier earrings and at least two fingers full of rings by Ana Khouri — just the right touch for an update on Hollywood glamour. It also reveals a trend toward rings that appear as if they have been stacked, in various shapes and silhouettes, all accented with diamonds.
