Here’s the Fashion Trend That’s Counteracting Rainbow Colors this Spring

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.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
