Black is Back and This Time It’s Serious

True, black never really goes out of style, but the powerful styles we saw on the fall runway have brought back the edgy sleekness that harks back to the days of the original Emma Peel in The Avengers mixed with the cyber-futurism of The Matrix films. It’s black in all its leather metropolitan austerity. Jewelry follows suit in black on black rhodium finishes accented by black diamonds and spinel in everything from wide collars to shield-like cuffs.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
