BEST KNOWN FOR her role on Gossip Girl for the run of the show, Leighton Meester has since grown into several movie roles, modeled for top brands and released her own album. A recent shoot for Numéro Netherlands magazine reveals how a modern actress can turn a Valentino frock and classic pearl necklace — reminiscent of the faux one that Audrey Hepburn made famous in Breakfast at Tiffany’s — into something the new generation of jewelry collectors and enthusiasts might want to own and wear on various occasions.

Not to mention it is a stunning Assael three-row Japanese Akoya pearl necklace with an 18K white gold and diamond clasp, and those in the industry know that Assael works with only the finest of pearls.

For the past five to 10 years, pearls have been making a comeback in unconventional designs – sometimes edgy, other times feminine yet with a unique twist in composition. But there is something about a beautifully graduated, perfectly matched pearl necklace that is familiar and breathtaking at the same time. Such a piece will outlast trends and may remind us of a piece that our grandmothers or mothers wore. See from this perspective, pearls link us to fond memories of generations of women in our families.

I would wear this necklace with much of my wardrobe.

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.”
