Fashion designers still love denim, and so do the women for whom they design. This classic fabric showed up on many of the Spring 2017 runways, often mixed with painterly blues that have the feeling of mosaic tiles. Jewelry designers also have a case of the blues and have brought back lapis as the gemstone to watch. And, it’s one of Pantone’s colors for spring.

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.”
