When we talk about non-traditional being the new norm for weddings, we weren’t exactly thinking white denim and all styles of pants as viable alternatives to gowns. But on the spring 2018 bridal runways, Oscar de la Renta and independent talents showed these casual variations, along with their more serious floor-length lace and beaded numbers. This informal approach to bridal calls for more alternative options in all forms of wedding jewelry.

And that’s the main reason why I contacted Wilkerson.”

THE CELEBRITIES ATTENDING the always-glamorous Cannes Film Festival were seeing and being seen in the color green. Adriana Lima, Helena Bordon, Petra Nemcova, Josephine Skriver and Julianne Moore all wore emeralds in their ears or around their necks. Ever since Angelina Jolie’s appearance in Lorraine Schwartz’s emerald earrings and ring at the 2009 Academy Awards, emerald stunners have brightened up almost every award show. The launch of Gemfields, Muzo and other responsibly -sourced gem companies in collaboration with innovative designers have created a renewed interest in the vivid green that carries meanings of hope and prosperity.
