BEYONCE POSTED a charming photo of herself with hubby Jay Z after her Gold Party. And while Bey was decked out in an urban cowgirl outfit, Jay Z was wearing a tux without his jacket with what looked like button covers and cufflinks along with a Marie Lichtenberg ring. It’s the third time this month I am writing about celebrities wearing independent jewelry designers, and that makes me super happy. Although I am a huge fan of the big houses and their archival jewelry, mega white diamonds and vibrantly designed gemstone jewels, it is really cool that A-listers are wearing pieces that are a bit off the grid.

Marie Lichtenberg has risen to cult status in a short time, winning design awards in 2023 during Las Vegas Jewelry week and being nominated for a prestigious 2024 Gem Award. Stores are clamoring to carry her pieces as customers continue to ask for them.

The ring Jay Z wore was a custom Box Ring in 18K gold with sapphires and diamonds, which when opened reveals a pear shaped diamond. This piece was entirely handmade in Lichtenberg’s Italian workshops, taking a total of 300 hours to construct. with 50 to 60 hours for the setting alone. There is another version of the ring on the Marie Lichtenberg website that reveals her cheeky sense of humor, but this one was custom designed and is the perfect size ring for an icon of Jay Z’s magnitude to wear.



She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
