INSTORE Design Awards

Best Engagement and Wedding Rings (Over$5,000) – 2019 Winners




Le Pur et Simple split-shank French pavé 18K white gold setting with 5-carat cushion cut white diamond center (I, VS1) and white diamonds (0.51 TCW)


MARC MAJORS: Incredible ring! I really like how the split shank tapers in towards the top, allowing the center diamond to really be the star of the show. The mounting is a nice accent but not a distraction, and the cushion cut is the perfect shape for this ring.

LINDY KAVANAUGH: A tapered band with a split shank enhances this stunning center stone and gives it a feminine feel. An interesting twist on a classic engagement ring.

LAUREN LEVISON: Love how the two bands meet to unify under the marriage stone. Symbolic of the relationship.

Wilkerson Testimonials

A Liquidation Sale during a Pandemic? Wilkerson Showed Them the Way

For 25 years, Stafford Jewelers of Cincinnati, Ohio, was THE place to go for special gifts, engagement diamonds, high-end Swiss watch brands — in other words, the crème de la crème of fine jewelry. But this summer, the Stafford family was ready to retire. So, they chose Wilkerson to help them close up shop. “One of the biggest concerns was having the sale in the middle of COVID,” says Director of Stores Michelle Randle. Wilkerson gave the Stafford team plenty of ideas as well as safety guidelines, which they closely followed. “All of the employees felt safe, the customers coming in the door felt safe and we did a lot of business,” says Randle. How much business? “The inventory flew,” she says. Translation: They sold millions and millions of dollars-worth of merchandise. Randle calls it, “an incredible experience.” Would she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers who are thinking of thinning their inventories or retiring? “Everyone got more than what they expected out of the sale. You have to hire Wilkerson. They’re amazing.”
