H.E.R. Wears a Mix of Independent Designers to the iHeart Radio Music Awards

She combined Briony Raymond and Melissa Kaye jewelry.




H.E.R. SHOWED UP at the 2023 iHeart Radio Music Awards in vibrant royal blue fashion (even matching her sunglasses to the clothes). What she didn’t match were her jewels. Instead, she mixed colors, shapes and metals with an offhanded nonchalance that worked well for the singer/songwriter.

She wore a combination of Melissa Kaye’s modern diamond rings in 18K pink and yellow gold as well as one of the designer’s neon enamel, 18K gold and diamond rings. She could have stopped there, but H.E.R. proved that there are no rules when it comes to wearing contemporary designers with vintage jewelry. Her neck was draped in Briony Raymond Estate vintage sterling silver and paste necklace (faux diamonds that these days cost almost as much as diamonds). Layered with the paste necklace, she wore a Briony Raymond Estate vintage 18K white gold with diamonds-by-the-yard style necklace. She then added Raymond’s contemporary designs to her ring story with an 18K white gold and diamond Cyclone ring featuring swirling rows of hand inlaid round brilliant diamonds graduating in size with slightly domed “bombé” style volume and her 18K white gold and Sloane Scatter ring of different size diamonds in burnished settings all around the comfort fit ring’s surface.

Although these were a mishmash of shapes, silhouettes and colors of gold, it all seamlessly fit with the outfit and the star’s ability to wear a smattering of different looks  of jewels and imbue them with her own individual style.

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.”
