SIA MARAVELIAS: This opulent blue sapphire and diamond stunner is an exquisite example in design! Unbelievably luxe with a halo of baguettes and unexpected prongs studded with blue sapphires elevate this ring to iconic, everlasting, heirloom status.

MATTHEW ROSENHEIM: This gorgeous ring screams luxury and quality being both deco and modern at the same time. The pavé sapphire prongs add that little extra detail, making it that much more compelling. Not a bad looking center stone either, to say the least!

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.”
