Judge the Jewels: Kesha Wears Personalized Elisa Solomon Necklaces to Honor Her Cats

Because fur babies deserve a place of honor.

The sighting: Singer-songwriter Kesha posted a pensive Instagram selfie that gave us a good view of her two new Elisa Solomon necklaces, which the artist loves so much that she called them “unreal.”

The jewels: Kesha is wearing Elisa Solomon’s Flower ID necklace in sterling silver with blue sapphires and in yellow gold with diamonds. The pendants are both engraved, each personalized with the name of one of Kesha’s cats.

The trends: Sentimental, personalized jewelry is a perennial favorite, one that has been extra popular for the past few years. It makes sense that times of trouble (like an extended global pandemic) would make people crave touchstones that remind them of the people that they love the most.

Engraved pieces are usually personalized with reminders of other humans – children, parents, spouses, etc. – but I absolutely love the idea of expanding that trend to include pets. Because why not? People love their pets and fur babies deserve a place of honor too.

What do we think? I adore this for many reasons, and not just because I’m a longtime fan of both Kesha’s music and Elisa Solomon’s jewelry. The slender pendants with their sprinkles of gemstone flowers are so pretty and I bet
Kesha smiles every time she wakes up in the mornin’ feelin’ like P Diddy and then puts on necklaces that honor her kitties.

Also, I love a celebrity who goes out of their way to showcase and credit their personal jewelry. More of this, please.

Judgement: 13/10 for pretty necklaces and sweet furry friends

When There’s No Succession Plan, Call Wilkerson

Bob Wesley, owner of Robert C. Wesley Jewelers in Scottsdale, Ariz., was a third-generation jeweler. When it was time to enjoy life on the other side of the counter, he weighed his options. His lease was nearing renewal time and with no succession plan, he decided it was time to call Wilkerson. There was plenty of inventory to sell and at first, says Wesley, he thought he might try to manage a sale himself. But he’s glad he didn’t. “There’s no way I could have done this as well as Wilkerson,” he says. Wilkerson took responsibility for the entire event, with every detail — from advertising to accounting — done, dusted and managed by the Wilkerson team. “It’s the complete package,” he says of the Wilkerson method of helping jewelers to easily go on to the next phase of their lives. “There’s no way any retailer can duplicate what they’ve done.”
