Products Here’s the Fashion Trend That’s Counteracting Rainbow Colors this Spring Published 3 years ago on March 21, 2018 By Beth Bernstein Instore April 2018 Issue Share Tweet Valentino Spring 2018. Runway photo courtesy of REX/Shutterstock. For every seasonal trend, there is a counter-trend. For spring 2018, the pragmatic, sporty functionality of monochromatic and neutral fashion has come out to contrast with the rainbow of Crayola colors and painterly prints we’ve already seen. It was utilitarian at its best with practical styles such as trench coats, drawstring jackets and jumpsuits with the use of essential details as decorative elements. In jewelry, this translates well into polished engravable dog tags with diamond edges, chunky link bracelets and signet style rings. These are no-frills but highly styled pieces that jewelry lovers will want to wear every day.

Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.” You may like Here’s What Was Selling Well Before The Pandemic This Runway and Jewelry Trend Is Clear as Black and White These Royalty and Runway-Inspired Engagement Rings Are Fit for a Princess Promoted Headlines Digital Warrior: A Conversation with GemFind’s Alex Fetanat GemFind A Sales Meeting Platform for The 21st Century The Plumb Club With Average Retails of $250, This Is One Brand You Won’t Want to Miss!
