Judge The Jewels: VP Kamala Harris Glows in Gold Harwell Godfrey Designs

She hosted an event in honor of the 50th Anniversary of hip hop.




The sighting: Vice President Kamala Harris recently hosted an event in honor of the 50th Anniversary of Hip Hop. The VP donned a colorful suit and Harwell Godfrey jewelry for the occasion.

The jewels: The VP is wearing Harwell Godfrey’s Foundation Cable Chain Necklace in 18K yellow gold, listed on the brand’s website for $4,950, as well as the Harwell Godfrey Stardust in 18K yellow gold with turquoise and diamonds (listed on the brand’s website for $8,250.

It’s hard to see in the first photo, but Harris is also wearing Harwell Godfrey’s Stardust ring in 18K yellow gold and diamonds (listed on the brand’s website for $17,950).

The trends: Harwell Godfrey’s bold gold creations are extraordinarily popular and it’s not difficult to understand why. This kind of dramatic, gold-heavy design is ultra-desirable right now and Godfrey is (rightfully) known for nailing this aesthetic.

What do we think? These unapologetically glamorous geometric designs say “hello, here I am!” with confidence and style. They’re elegant but not fussy, modern but not excessively trendy. It’s a perfect mood for the VP, and I love the joyful exuberance of pairing the Stardust pendant’s pop of turquoise with Harris’ already colorful outfit.

Also, I love seeing VP Harris using her own visibility to promote the work of another talented Black woman. The fact that the VP wore this ensemble to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Hip Hop, a genre defined by the excellence of Black artists, makes the combination even more appropriate.

Judgement: 17/10 for a gorgeous and very appropriate jewelry choice.

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.”
