Ultra Violet, Pantone’s Color of The Year for 2018, a color associated with the counter-culture of the ‘60s and pop culture of the ‘80s, evokes originality, artistry and symbolism. Spiritually, it is a color connected to the third eye chakra, representing intuition and wisdom. In the jewelry world, amethyst and shades of purple sapphires are perfect to express designers’ awareness of the cultural associations relevant today as well as their own ingenuity and creativity. Let purple reign!

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
