THE YEARLY JEWELERS of America Fine Jewelry Preview consistently brings emerging designers and established brands together in a presentation for editors and bloggers to discover trends, talent and new items. This year was no exception. The 2019 event was sponsored by The Cultured Pearl Association of America and The Silver Promotion Service who also featured pieces from their members.

The predominant trends at the event were earth, sky, color and nostalgia.

EARTH

Mother Nature once again steps in and inspires jewelry designers in organic forms and gemstones. Leaves, butterflies, wings and flowers were in the mix as were stones such as leopard agate.

The real message is in creating silhouettes that will highlight these gems, whether it be a rainbow of colors or one singular stone.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
