Anne Hathaway Stuns in Bulgari at the Clooney Foundation for Justice’s Albie Awards

On the red carpet, she is an elegant and radiant ambassador for the brand.




I CAN’T REMEMBER A time when Anne Hathaway wasn’t a style-setter who wore sublime jewelry. OK, maybe in The Devil Wears Prada when her character first lands the job and is wearing chunky knits and hasn’t had her Vogue-like transformation yet. But on the red carpet, she is elegant, radiant and a stunning Global Ambassador for Bulgari.

I keep thinking about some of the house’s high jewelry pieces, like the bold statement styles that graced her neck at the Cannes Film Festival, Academy Awards, Golden Globes and, well, almost every award show she’s been to in the past several years.

At this event, her gown was inset with lace trim and and was a wonderful foil for her Bulgari jewels. She wore a high jewelry necklace in white gold with one round brilliant-cut diamond, paired with the house’s high jewelry diamond earrings. But the most outstanding and iconic jewels were saved for her wrist and fingers. Hathaway wore the Serpenti Secret Watch with an 18K white gold head set with brilliant-cut diamonds, brilliant-cut sapphires and lapis lazuli eyes, along with a high jewelry Serpenti bracelet in white gold with two pear-shaped emeralds and pavé-set diamonds. She also wore multiple high jewelry diamonds rings to finish off her look. The contrast of the softer, almost floral-like necklace and Serpenti pieces worked well to create a feminine and powerfully sensual look.

When There’s No Succession Plan, Call Wilkerson

Bob Wesley, owner of Robert C. Wesley Jewelers in Scottsdale, Ariz., was a third-generation jeweler. When it was time to enjoy life on the other side of the counter, he weighed his options. His lease was nearing renewal time and with no succession plan, he decided it was time to call Wilkerson. There was plenty of inventory to sell and at first, says Wesley, he thought he might try to manage a sale himself. But he’s glad he didn’t. “There’s no way I could have done this as well as Wilkerson,” he says. Wilkerson took responsibility for the entire event, with every detail — from advertising to accounting — done, dusted and managed by the Wilkerson team. “It’s the complete package,” he says of the Wilkerson method of helping jewelers to easily go on to the next phase of their lives. “There’s no way any retailer can duplicate what they’ve done.”
