THERE’S A REASON that pearls have been the most iconic example of high-class luxury for hundreds of years: their lustrous lure is eternal. 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.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
