Karlie Kloss Wore Just Enough Bling to Shine at the WSJ Magazine 2021 Innovator Awards

Her Ana Khouri mismatched earrings provided just enough sparkle to keep the ear party going.

KARLIE KLOSS HAS been turning up at all the big red carpet events, and at each event, she wore just the right amount of bling. She was rapturous in a red gown at the Met Gala with sparkling diamond earrings. She recently wore a celebrity red carpet trend that we have been seeing a lot — sheer fashion — to the WSJ Magazine 2021 Innovator Awards in New York City. But her cool black bra was upstaged by Ana Khouri’s artistic and sculptural approach to diamond earrings and rings. When the stars wear Khouri’s jewelry (many wore her pieces to the MET Gala), they seem to light up. Her mismatched cuffs and climbers were partially responsible for the earring revival, and Khouri was definitely a driving force and revolutionized the way women wore earrings for the past five or so years. The ear party, as it became known, started with pieces like Khouri’s and evolved into more price-conscious and smaller studs, climbers and cuffs that could be worn every day. But let’s get back to Kloss’s moment. She shone in Khouri’s briolette beauties worn close on the ear, which included a wider ear piece, a more narrow look in a similar style and a raised style hoop.

I would totally wear this combination. It reminded me of how all of the stars in Hollywood’s heyday would get their publicity shots done wearing earrings that were in keeping with the mood of what they were promoting without ever overshadowing them.

Kloss, a supermodel and a judge on “Project Runway,” knows how to strut her stuff and wear her jewelry without letting it wear her.

I give this look a huge thumbs up.

It’s Going to Set Us Up Very Nicely for Retirement

You’ve worked hard all your life. And if you’re like most jewelers contemplating retirement, you’re hoping that your going-out-of-business sale will add to your nest egg — with minimal complications. That’s exactly what Doug and Jacki Friedrich, fourth-generation owners of Friedrich Jewelers Inc., of Vernon, Conn., experienced when they selected Wilkerson to run their sale. “Jewelers who are contemplating a sale should go with Wilkerson because of their experience,” says Doug. And with financial goals “exceeding expectations,” the couple can now focus on enjoying the next chapter of their lives. “It’s going to set us up very nicely for retirement,” says Jacki. “The money’s coming in and we have no complaints. It’s been wonderful.”
