In a stunning collaboration that blended the worlds of fashion and jewelry, Chatham joined forces with renowned fashion designer Kevan Hall to present an upper end collection inspired by the glamour of the 1930s French Coast. This collaboration brought a touch of timeless elegance and sophistication to the runway, captivating audiences and setting new trends in sustainable luxury.

The runway show was a breathtaking exhibition, with models adorned in Kevan Hall’s creations, featuring Chatham’s lab-grown gemstones as the crowning jewels. The gemstones added a unique touch of opulence to each ensemble, elevating the overall aesthetic and delivering a powerful message about the potential of luxury lab-grown gemstones and diamonds in the fashion industry.

Their commitment to ethical practices and social responsibility aligns perfectly with Kevan Hall’s vision for a fashion industry that prioritizes sustainability and responsible sourcing.

The inspiration for this remarkable partnership was drawn from the enchanting atmosphere of the 1930s French Riviera, where iconic destinations like Deauville and Cannes became synonymous with luxury and allure. In this collaboration, the gemstones were used in a variety of 18K gold settings, from necklaces and earrings to statement rings, all meticulously crafted to reflect the elegance of the French Coast. The lab-grown gemstones showcased a remarkable array of colors, from deep oceanic blues reminiscent of the Côte d’Azur to the vibrant teals that echoed the allure of Deauville’s glamorous beaches.

The collection’s debut at New York Fashion Week received rave reviews from industry insiders and fashion enthusiasts alike. It demonstrated that sustainability and luxury can go hand in hand, inspiring other designers, and brands to explore alternatives in their creations. This event marked a pivotal moment in the fashion industry’s acceptance of lab-grown color gemstones and diamonds.

This Third-Generation Jeweler Was Ready for Retirement. He Called Wilkerson

Retirement is never easy, especially when it means the end to a business that was founded in 1884. But for Laura and Sam Sipe, it was time to put their own needs first. They decided to close J.C. Sipe Jewelers, one of Indianapolis’ most trusted names in fine jewelry, and call Wilkerson. “Laura and I decided the conditions were right,” says Sam. Wilkerson handled every detail in their going-out-of-business sale, from marketing to manning the sales floor. “The main goal was to sell our existing inventory that’s all paid for and turn that into cash for our retirement,” says Sam. “It’s been very, very productive.” Would they recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers who want to enjoy their golden years? Absolutely! “Call Wilkerson,” says Laura. “They can help you achieve your goals so you’ll be able to move into retirement comfortably.”
