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.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Why This Fourth-Generation Jeweler Chose Wilkerson for a Very Special Sale

Parian & Sons of Franklin Lakes, NJ was founded in the early part of the 20th century. But even stores that have successfully made it through the Great Depression, a World War and the Woodstock Generation must come to an end. With no family wanting to continue the tradition, the time was right for Glenn Parian and his wife, Maria, to retire. And what better way to do so than by hiring Wilkerson to help with the store’s liquidation sale. As Glenn puts it, with his credit card machine humming to the tune of up to 200 transactions a day, he couldn’t have done it without Wilkerson. “This is what they do,” he says. “This is what they do for everybody.”
