PEARL JEWELRY WAS already enjoying a moderate rise in popularity when Kamala Harris chose pearls as the signature accessory for her history-making rise to vice president. The lovely, ladylike pearl took on fresh luster as it appeared again and again behind podiums of power. When women of all ages bedecked themselves in pearls to honor Harris’ inauguration, it became clear that we were truly at the dawn of a new age for the pearl.

Pearl jewelry by Moritz Glik enclosed in white sapphire “kaleidoscope shakers” includes Concha pearl ring with freshwater pearls in 18K rose gold, $1,900; Concha pearl pendant with freshwater pearls in 18K rose gold, $2,600; Mar 24 necklace with Akoya and South Sea keshi pearls in 18K yellow gold, $4,200; and Mar 34 necklace with Tahitian keshi and South Sea keshi pearls in 18K yellow gold, $5,300.

Wilkerson Testimonials | MSG Jewelers

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
