Here’s the Colorful Runway Trend That’s Influencing Jewelry Designs This Summer

Ready-to-wear designers sent a cross-cultural quilt of textures and patterns down the runway for fall/winter 2018/19. The result was a colorful patchwork from around the globe, all worked into cohesive coats and dresses. Fine jewelry designers have translated this feeling with a slightly more organic flair with a mix of brightly colored and more neutral gemstones in pieces with a painterly montage feeling. This continues the trend toward colored gemstones in everything from tonal versions to juxtaposing pale and vivid hues.

Wilkerson Testimonials

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.”
