Light, bright, and always a classic, silver shines on.

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

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.
