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.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
