True, there are countless articles about the “glass ceiling” and 77 cents earned per every man’s dollar, but there are still many women winning at the corporate game. And when they suit up for action, they want the appropriate accessories. Nothing denotes power like the gleam of gold and platinum. Simple silhouettes, monochromatic colors and quiet bling are the way to go for jewels that can command attention in the boardroom. — CINDY EDELSTEIN

THE EARRINGS

The Power Player earrings are not too big, not too colorful and not too swingy. They should add a glimmer of gold and a glint of gems in a restrained yet elegant way.

THE BRACELET

A power gold cuff is a great balance to the power watches that men wear. And simple, unfussy shapes can be feminized with pearls or gems and a bit of soft chain.

THE NECKLACE

The Power Player is always on the go, so jewelry that can be combined, worn different ways and converted is always the best idea for her to get more looks from a few pieces.

THE RING

A gold ring with monochromatic colored gems and a minimalist silhouette will work with every business outfit. Steer clear of trendy colors, odd shapes and funky textures. This is where restraint really pays off.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
