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.”

There is something powerful about a pinky ring: it’s a small piece of jewelry that makes a big statement. This signet ring includes a black spinel, which is said to repel negative energy. When worn with the point of the triangle facing down, it symbolizes feminine energy.

THE FORTUNE TELLER is a woman who believes in the power of her talismanic jewelry. She loves past inspiration but prefers to wear symbolic pieces from modern designers and think about the next chapter in her life. She values love, luck and protection, and she appreciates charms that hold deep meaning in these areas. She is fearless about mixing metals, colors and medallions together as long as they are significant to her.

1. Foundrae

For the Fortune Teller, a charm bracelet reflects where she has been and how she is moving forward in her life. She wears the lion medallion for strength, the dream star, arrow and triangle for “actualizing her dreams,” the scarab for protection and the karma medallion to send out positive energy into the world.

Foundrae extended clip chain with four 20mm medallions with diamond accents, all in 18K yellow gold.
