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.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
