Style-setting actresses had some major competition in the bling department during the 73rd Prime Time Emmy Awards: The men turned up shimmering in diamonds from neck to hands. For numerous seasons, we have witnessed the “man brooch” become the jewel to watch for guys on the red carpet. But during the Emmys, everyone from Jon Batiste in Cartier to Billy Porter in Lorraine Schwartz was draped in diamonds. Billy Porter piled on more jewels than any of the women at the awards (and just might have worn more jewels than some serious collectors have amassed over many years). He wore all of the major trends in diamonds—from multiple earrings to wide bracelets to an emerald and diamond statement necklace to fingers full of rings. Coco Chanel’s advice, “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off,” didn’t seem to have an effect on Porter’s jewel styling or the black wings that he wore as part of his fashion statement. Porter has worn jewels before, but he outdid himself at the 2021 Emmys. Porter speaks about the importance of diverse representation, and we love that about him. But we think you should go slowly on when suggesting diamonds to men visiting your stores. Many men still think a watch, a bracelet and a wedding band is being overdressed when it comes to jewelry, so we think you can introduce one diamond piece and slowly teach men how to incorporate them into their daily looks. We suggest you start with a diamond accented signet ring, a bracelet or a diamond tie clip or “man brooch” for starters. But we thank Billy for being an original!

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
