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.

Wilkerson Testimonials

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.”
