Sea Grass earrings with 14K gold starfish posts with baroque Tahitian Keshi pearls, Paraiba tourmaline and aquamarine cabochons,

$4,000

MARC MAJORS: I love these earrings! Great use of the colors and the design is spot on. And to get aquamarines, Tahitian pearls and Paraiba tourmalines in one pair of earrings for $4,000 … NO BRAINER!

LINDY KAVANAUGH: The stunning color of the tourmaline, paired with the cool blue of the aquamarines and muted silvery color of the pearls, is playful yet conservative.

LAUREN LEVISON: These are dreamy and remind me of fresh air and water. And wouldn’t they be a great purchase to be made on vacation by the sea? They would just always be a special reminder of a wonderful time.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
