Who: Dua Lipa

What was she wearing? Two wide curb chain chokers

Where was she wearing them? iHeartRadio Music Festival, held on Sept. 19, 2021, with a corset type top in what looks like leather and crystal insets.

Why they are a trend: From butterfly pendants to hoop earrings to fingers full of rings, Dua Lipa has become a celeb to watch for her choices in jewelry and fashion. In addition to being a pop music artist, she’s been ambassador to Evian water, appeared on myriad magazine covers and signed a modeling contract with Next Models. This past season, she walked the catwalk in her first runway show for Versace in Milan. Her double curb chain chokers are right on target with the past few seasons’ emphasis on bold chains, which we have been seeing on the international runways as well as the collections of independent and up-and-coming designers. The combination of the way in which Lipa can pull off high fashion with a feminine yet edgy style and the comeback of ‘80s chains — particularly the rounded curb chain and choker length necklaces — has all the makings of an evolving trend.

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.”
