WINNER : Erica Courtney

18K yellow gold Mandalas pendant with 2.00-carat Brazilian Paraiba tourmaline and canary tourmalines (6.71 TCW), neon mint grossular garnets (1.32 TCW), Brazilian Paraiba tourmaline accents (0.58 TCW) and diamonds (1.56 TCW).

$213,000

PATRICIA FABER: I don’t think anyone does a palette of pastel and rare precious gems better than Erica Courtney; the colors bounce off each other, drawing the eye to the full design.

ORIN AND TINA MAZZONI: Magnificent! The work that it must have taken to match the color on this many Paraibas is unbelievable. A real showstopper for the woman that knows her color and wants to make an impressive entrance.

LAURIE WATT: What can you say about an E.C. piece but wonderful use of color, wonderful design and quality piece of construction.

When Liquidation Is the Best Option, This Legendary Jeweler Chose Wilkerson

George Koueiter & Sons Jewelers, a 65-year old jewelry institution in Grosse Pointe, MI, had always been a mainstay in this suburban Detroit community. But when owners George and Paul Koueiter were ready to retire, they made the decision to close rather than sell. “We decided our best option to do the liquidation sale was Wilkerson,” says Paul Koueiter. The results, says George Koueiter, exceeded expectations and the process was easy. “Wilkerson just kept us in mind,” says George. “They never did anything without asking and whatever they asked us to do was just spot on.”
