Historically reserved for empresses, doyennes and goddesses, today the creamy beauty of pearls is accessible to customers seeking every style, price point and category.

Golden South Sea pearl jewelry in 18K yellow gold from Jewelmer’s Les Classiques collection is modeled by Solenn Heussaff, including bangle, $3,860; ring, $2,250; earrings, $5,550; and necklace, $57,230. Contact Franck Ferrari at [email protected]. PHOTOGRAPHER: BJ Pascual.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
