The sighting: Actress Allison Williams recently attended the New York premiere of her movie M3GAN, a thriller that looks like it could haunt my nightmares for the rest of my life. Williams’ jewelry for the evening, however, was anything but terrifying.

The jewels: Allison Williams is wearing all Fred Leighton jewels, a mix of antique and contemporary pieces.

Her earrings and bracelets are the new pieces, from the Signed by Fred Leighton line. The earrings feature cushion-cut kunzites in silver-topped gold collet settings, while the bracelets are a stack of similar collet settings with citrine, blue topaz, amethyst, and colorless topaz.

The rings are vintage and antique, all from Fred Leighton’s world-class collection: one 18K yellow gold snake ring, one Georgian-era foil-backed citrine and diamond cluster ring, and one fancy color diamond ring.

The trends: I don’t know if you know this, but well-executed collet settings are absolute catnip to antique jewelry enthusiasts. Fred Leighton nails this contemporary incarnation of one of the Georgian era’s most coveted trends (coveted both then and now).

Besides that, these bracelets are a colorful, interesting take on one of the hottest trends of recent years: they’re basically extremely luxurious and extra fashionable tennis bracelets.

What do we think? I maybe would have gone with a necklace for that neckline…but I absolutely adore all of the jewelry that is present. I’m one of those antique jewelry enthusiasts who adores collet settings and I think that the Signed by Fred Leighton pieces absolutely nail everything that I appreciate about that aesthetic. I also love that the bracelets are stacked in vibrant colors, instead of neutrals.

As for the rings? Pure perfection. There isn’t one there that I wouldn’t happily own. That’s actually true of every piece in this look. Fantastic work as always, Fred Leighton team.

Judgement: 14/10

This Third-Generation Jeweler Was Ready for Retirement. He Called Wilkerson

Retirement is never easy, especially when it means the end to a business that was founded in 1884. But for Laura and Sam Sipe, it was time to put their own needs first. They decided to close J.C. Sipe Jewelers, one of Indianapolis’ most trusted names in fine jewelry, and call Wilkerson. “Laura and I decided the conditions were right,” says Sam. Wilkerson handled every detail in their going-out-of-business sale, from marketing to manning the sales floor. “The main goal was to sell our existing inventory that’s all paid for and turn that into cash for our retirement,” says Sam. “It’s been very, very productive.” Would they recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers who want to enjoy their golden years? Absolutely! “Call Wilkerson,” says Laura. “They can help you achieve your goals so you’ll be able to move into retirement comfortably.”
