SKY HIGH GOLD prices have done little to dampen jewelry lovers’ desire for this quintessentially luxurious precious metal. Years of whisper-thin stacking rings and tiny studs have given way to a hunger for chunky, weighty, substantive standalones as consumers crave eye-catching creations that aren’t afraid to take up space.

14K brushed yellow gold jewelry by Jean Basse includes Metro Collection earrings with diamonds (0.50 TCW), $3,000; and Octagon eternity bracelet, $2,800. All jewelry designed and made in Chicago. Call (312) 972-5858, email [email protected] or visit jeanbasse.com for more information. MODEL: Katie Brunn PHOTOGRAPHER: Alec Basse AGENCY: The Rock Agency in Chicago

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
