Kendra Scott Enters New Category with Launch of First Watch Collection

(PRESS RELEASE) AUSTIN, TX — Kendra Scott expands into a new category with its first-ever collection of watches, ranging from signature timepieces to elevated watch bands compatible with the complete Apple Watch Series. The Watch Collection by Kendra Scott is yet another milestone marking the brand’s 20th anniversary, launching just in time for Mother’s Day.

The collection combines the functionality of a timepiece with the signature, design-driven elements Kendra Scott is celebrated for. Building on Kendra Scott’s jewelry expertise, an endeavor into watches was an organic next category, and the brand’s affinity for color and natural materials is incorporated throughout the collection.

The watches bear the brand’s heritage shapes, including the Alex, Dira, and Elle — each featuring a unique, inlaid stone or shell dial face sourced from around the globe, including Mother-of-Pearl, Black Mother-of-Pearl, Turquoise Magnesite or Abalone. The Watch Collection by Kendra Scott additionally features a GIA-certified diamond centered in the brand’s logo medallion at the 12 o’clock index, a nod to the brand’s love of sparkle, fine craftsmanship, and attention to detail.

“We are thrilled to continue to expand the Kendra Scott brand with the launch of watches, a natural next step in our product innovation,” said Kendra Scott, founder, designer, and executive chairwoman of the brand. “We all track our screen time, our scroll time, but not our time spent doing the things we love. A timepiece is a reminder that there’s no better gift than the time we can spend together, and I hope that this new category helps inspire our customers to take the time to celebrate moments for themselves and their loved ones this spring.”

The Watch Collection by Kendra Scott launches in Kendra Scott retail stores and online here. Price points range from $198 to $328 for watches and $128 to $148 for Kendra Scott Bands, which are compatible with the complete Apple Watch Series.




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.”
