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.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
