THIS FALL/WINTER 2018/19 direction blends the romanticism of Victorian pirates with the ‘80s punk version of the trend and creates a new, more feminine take. Jewelry designers have played with shapes and silhouettes of corsets, ruffles and decorative elements, creating a look that gives a nod to the past but has presence in its current forms.

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.”
