Emily Ratajkowski Mixes Fred Leighton and Ana Khouri at Met Gala

Two contrasting trends worked together to create a memorable look.




EMILY RATAJKOWSKI WAS radiant at the 2023 Met Gala. She juxtaposed two styles of jewelry to project unstudied elegance — even though we know that stylists had perfected her from head to toe before she walked the red carpet. But what’s important is how two contrasting trends worked together to create relevant, lasting styles.

Ratajkowski’s Fred Leighton trio of rings inspired by the Georgian era and styles the shop carries from that period provided the inspiration for Leighton’s in-house designers’ renditions, spearheaded by Rebecca Selva, which included rose-cut, cushion and emerald cut diamond rings, collet set in silver topped 18K gold. While these had a distinctive heirloom quality, they were more pared down than the authentic antiques, and so the contrast of Ana Khouri’s thoroughly modern mismatched earrings created a win.

I wish more people, not only celebrity stylists, would try out new combinations of jewels: past and present, unexpected color combinations, and a mix of statement and more personalized jewelry.

In any case, I give Ratajkowski a thumbs-up on her entire Met Gala outfit, which also honored Karl Lagerfeld and his love of diamonds and elegant gowns.



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.”
