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.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
