SILVER CAN BE SERIOUS, shiny, silly, seductive, sinuous, sparkly, sleek, subversive, and subtle — sometimes all at the same time. From accessible fashion jewelry to exotic, experimental artistry, silver’s affordability and effortless appeal make it a fantastic multi-tasker.

Structural Stunners 

Seasons of minimalist stacking jewelry are causing a boldness backlash: structural statement jewelry is on the rise! Subtle styles aren’t going anywhere, but mid-century modernesque abstraction and larger scale designs are surging in popularity — especially on the ear.

With a remodeling project looming, the time was right for Steve and Linda Hammalian, owners of Little Treasure Jewelers in Gambrills, MD, to call in the Wilkerson pros. The couple needed to liquidate excess, aging inventory. Steve says he’d totally recommend them. “Wilkerson offered a comprehensive solution in terms of advertising, in terms of on-site presence and for their overall enthusiasm.

DIAMOND BRACELETS CLAIMED their share of the spotlight during this year’s awards season. We saw them piled high in stacks or as one wide standout piece. Designers are inspired by the garland styles of the Belle Époque, the geometric lines of art deco, and mid-20th century modern looks. Teach clients to layer styles that they can purchase over time — or help them find that one everyday go-to.
