A NECKLACE HANGS FRONT AND CENTER, proudly prominent, subject to the rhythm of every breath. A necklace is intimate, immediate. It drapes across the nape of the neck and down to the décolletage; it can be tucked in like a secret or flaunted with pride. A necklace is the closest piece of jewelry to the wearer’s beating heart.

Like an amulet in a fairy tale, the right necklace can help its wearer focus the strength and energy required to take on the challenges of the daily grind. Necklaces are the easiest kind of jewelry to throw on: they require no piercings and they’re almost never the wrong size.

Wilkerson Testimonials

To Generate Funds for a Jeweler’s Move and Remodel, Wilkerson More Than Delivered

Even successful jewelers need a little extra cash to fund expansion plans—especially when there’s inventory on hand that’s ripe for liquidation. For Beaumont, Texas-based jeweler Michael Price, co-owner of Mathews Jewelers, it was the perfect time to call Wilkerson. Price talked to other jewelers as well as vendors for advice during the selection process and decided to go with Wilkerson. And he wasn’t disappointed. When it comes to paying for the move and expansion, Price says the road ahead is clear. “When we close on the next two stores, there’s no worries about finances.”
