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.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
