The sighting: Actress Sandra Oh attended the 2022 Emmy Awards in a luminous, plunging purple pantsuit with sequins for miles and a matching jacket. Instead of choosing understated jewels to pair with the bold outfit, Oh went for dazzling Cathy Waterman designs.

The jewels: The actress is wearing three beautiful pieces of jewelry by Cathy Waterman: the designer’s platinum Wheat Side cocktail ring with an openwork geometric design and kunzite center stone, a pair of Blackened Bamboo earrings featuring delicate platinum vines adorned with diamond leaves and suspending large pink morganite drops.

The third Cathy Waterman jewel is more subtle, but no less lovely: a platinum and diamond checkerboard ring. It’s a wide diamond band with alternating openings that create a checkerboard effect.

Judge the Jewels: Sandra Oh Is a High Note in Year of Otherwise Boring Emmy’s Jewelry

What do we think? If I didn’t make it clear enough in the headline, I found this year’s Emmy’s jewelry to be underwhelming. Not that there’s anything wrong with classic diamond line necklaces, subdued diamond drops, or an endless parade of shimmering diamond cocktail rings…but as someone who watches these awards primarily for the jewelry, I was disappointed.

There were a few other standouts: I enjoyed Sarah Snook’s Irene Neuwirth jewels, Lisa Ann Walter’s gold Neil Lane earrings, and Reese Witherspoon’s Tiffany & Co necklace. But Sandra Oh was my favorite by far. The color! The interesting design! The panache with which she wore these pieces! I also love that the earrings and necklace go well together but are not strictly matching. It’s fresh and creative and delightful all around.

Judgement: 17/10 for actually interesting jewels on a snoozeworthy red carpet night.

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
