Go Big or Go Home

Ear apparel for everyone, whether they’re looking for bold or understated looks.




STATEMENT EARRINGS ARE back with a vengeance after years of delicate, multi-part ear curations. That’s not to say that constellations of tiny earrings are out the window — they’re staying as a staple — but more and more jewelry lovers are choosing to wear one big pair of earrings for their special occasions. Even solo studs are becoming more interesting! Because when you’re wearing just one earring on an ear, it needs to be a great one.

Jewelry by Lisa Nik includes asymmetric peridot drop earrings with diamonds, $7,140; 18K white gold diamond line necklace, $19,950; 18K yellow gold diamond wave band, $4,620; 18K rose gold green quartz ring with diamonds, $2,940; and 18K white gold oval shaped tanzanite ring with diamonds, $12,600.

Daring Dazzlers

These serious statement makers are big and bold, each pair a gorgeous wearable marquee announcing I have arrived. Major earrings require confidence and panache, but they also have a unique magic that can inspire otherwise timid customers to come out of their shells.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Wilkerson: “They Feel Like Family”

Newton’s Jewelers in Fort Smith, Ark., was a true institution. But after being at the helm for most of his life, owner (and descendent of the original founder) Kelly Newton decided it was time to retire. He chose Wilkerson to handle the sale. “I’ve known the owners of Wilkerson for a long, long time. I felt at home with them,” he says. The final retirement sale was just a “blast” and the Wilkerson sales team made it so very simple and straightforward, says Newton. Would he recommend Wilkerson to others? Absolutely. “They’ve done incredible work,” says Newton. “They feel like family.”
