Protect Yourself

Nestling just above the heart, some necklaces are more talisman than trinket. These powerful pieces remind the wearer that they are cherished; that they have forces on their side and people in their corner. Whether directly symbolic or just blessed with good vibes, a necklace that helps its bearer feel protected is a treasure indeed.

Building Blocks

These charismatic but flexible styles are distinctive enough to shine solo, but are also ideally suited to play a supporting role in a multi-piece ensemble. When a shopper realizes they can layer a fresh find with their existing collection to get dozens of looks from just one new piece, the idea of a purchase becomes even more appealing.

Wilkerson Testimonials

When Liquidation Is the Best Option, This Legendary Jeweler Chose Wilkerson

George Koueiter & Sons Jewelers, a 65-year old jewelry institution in Grosse Pointe, MI, had always been a mainstay in this suburban Detroit community. But when owners George and Paul Koueiter were ready to retire, they made the decision to close rather than sell. “We decided our best option to do the liquidation sale was Wilkerson,” says Paul Koueiter. The results, says George Koueiter, exceeded expectations and the process was easy. “Wilkerson just kept us in mind,” says George. “They never did anything without asking and whatever they asked us to do was just spot on.”
