We as a culture are feeling a little more rebellious than usual in 2017, and earrings are the perfect way to translate that sentiment into jewelry. This is a big, brave, bold moment for the ear, from creative multi-piercing combinations spotted on street-style stars to Beyonce’s mega-statement ear wear at the 2017 Grammys.

Perfect for Stacking

The fun of multiple ear piercings has reached every age group of the customer base, and if you’re smart, you’ll stock plenty of stack-ready earrings to match the demand. Remind your shoppers that if they’re rocking multiple piercings, each pair of earrings they take home is several looks in one — especially if they’re bold enough to try asymmetrical styling.

Wilkerson Testimonials

When It’s Time for Something New, Call Wilkerson

Fifty-four years is a long time to stay in one place. So, when Cindy Skatell-Dacus, owner of Skatell’s Custom Jewelers in Greenville, SC decided to move on to life’s next adventure, she called Wilkerson. “I’d seen their ads in the trade magazines for years,’ she says, before hiring them to run her store’s GOB sale. It was such a great experience, Skatell-Dacus says it didn’t even seem like a sale was taking place. Does she have some advice for others thinking of a liquidation or GOB sale? Three words, she says: “Wilkerson. Wilkerson. Wilkerson.”
