I WILL NEVER FORGET the moment Angelina Jolie arrived on the red carpet during the 81st Academy Awards wearing a black dress and a vibrant pair of emerald earrings by Lorraine Schwartz. It was an iconic moment of color not seen on the red carpet since Hollywood in its heyday. After that magical moment in 2009, stars such as Julianne Moore, Jennifer Lopez and Zoe Kravitz donned emerald and other gemstone earrings. Here’s to a look back and a look forward at the styles in emerald earrings still going strong years after Jolie set an enchanting trend.

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.”
