Identity and adventure are this free spirit’s watchwords.

THE GENDER BENDER DOESN’T conform to the norm, instead choosing a style all their own without feeling the need to abide by some imaginary rule, color scheme, or label. The jewelry they select for their wardrobe can range from statement-making simplicity to purposeful practicality, but don’t let the lack of diamonds fool you … their adornments are something they take pride in showing off. 

1. Marla Aaron

A single long chain carrying a statement pendant or eye-catching bauble is the Gender Bender’s staple when it comes to everyday jewelry, and one that was gifted by a loved one or friend carries even more importance.

18K white gold Free Form #1 inlay lock with gemstones, including but not limited to opal, lapis lazuli, onyx, and carnelian. Accompanied here by a 32-inch 14K white gold Rolo chain.

$8,736 (for necklace and lock)

2. Marco Dal Maso

From finely made fabrics to the look of leather, this free spirit selects textiles and metals that mean something to them while still choosing to showcase their unique sense of style.

The 18K “black” gold clasp bracelet from the Kiri Collection set with sapphires (1.35 TCW) on Italian blue leather.

3. Alp Sagnak

The Gender Bender has never struggled with trying to be unique. And wearing jewelry that’s as interesting as they are, or tells a story like they do, has become just as much a part of their daily life as the air they breathe.

Blackened silver and ruby ring from TheWORD collection with rubies (3.49 TCW) pavé set into a ring that can be worn various ways.

$2,100

4. Tudor

The Gender Bender loves the feel of a hefty watch on their wrist because it reminds them to make the most of the time they have. But just because they like their watches to be substantial doesn’t mean it needs to be huge.

The Black Bay 36 with Tudor caliber 2824 self-winding mechanical movement (no battery changes required), with steel bracelet or camouflage fabric strap.

$2,850

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
