For Fall, Designers Are Stealing a Few Tricks From Men’s Suits

Ready-to-wear designers borrowed traditional menswear suit fabrics and translated them into unconventional and feminine silhouettes on the fall/winter 2017/18 runways. For jewelry, this translates into a look that is at once powerful in shape and tactile in texture, from rings that imitate shirt cuffs to hound’s-tooth and herringbone patterns for bracelets, large medals and medallions.

Wilkerson Testimonials

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.”
