Ready-to-wear designers lined their shows with fresh lavender. Whether they showed this calming shade in feminine dresses, streamlined essentials or edgy bomber jackets, this pastel hue is having a moment. Lavender sapphires, rose de France amethyst, kunzite and other shades of soft purple gemstones range from faceted to cabochon and are set into delicate stackable and layering pieces or bolder, more graphic styles.

Why This Fourth-Generation Jeweler Chose Wilkerson for a Very Special Sale

Parian & Sons of Franklin Lakes, NJ was founded in the early part of the 20th century. But even stores that have successfully made it through the Great Depression, a World War and the Woodstock Generation must come to an end. With no family wanting to continue the tradition, the time was right for Glenn Parian and his wife, Maria, to retire. And what better way to do so than by hiring Wilkerson to help with the store’s liquidation sale. As Glenn puts it, with his credit card machine humming to the tune of up to 200 transactions a day, he couldn’t have done it without Wilkerson. “This is what they do,” he says. “This is what they do for everybody.”
