Leslie Paige Smith halo ring

(PRESS RELEASE) PORTLAND, OR — Leslie Paige Smith has a reputation for inventiveness in her jewelry designs – think of her, and her “Perched Setting” that intentionally shows off the front as well as the back of each gemstone, while her Puzzle Rings champion variation as they can be woven on in a combination of ways.

Leslie continues her innovation streak with her new “Edge-Set Halo Collection” that includes rings, earrings, and necklaces. It’s an evolution of her signature Perched Setting. Leslie has re-thought the halo and given it both a turn and an edge.

She recounts the moment of inspiration. “I’d been getting such an amazing response to my Perched Setting Collection. The best part was having one of my designer friends say to me, ‘Damn, I wished I’d come up with that!’ I knew I was onto something unique.”

“So I decided to see what kind of evolution I could give my perched setting concept. I thought, wait, I can embellish the bezel around the perched settings with smaller gemstones to make my version of a halo. And not just that, I can turn these gemstones 90 degrees, so they face a different direction, like a profile. Oh, fun, this is new!”

The result is that her new collection has interest, personality, and even multiple focal points, depending on the angle you view the pieces from. The edge-set halo gives Leslie’s usually streamlined designs an almost vintage, neo-Victorian feel.

Carol Ferguson, owner of Element 79 Jewelry in Denver (formerly Signet Jewelry Boutique) is an enthusiastic fan. “I own a Leslie Paige perch setting ring. I call it my “driving ring!” The sunlight comes through the window, then bounces through the gemstone in such a dazzling way thanks to the elevated stone. Now, Leslie’s new Edge-Set Halo Collection adds another fascinating element to her perched setting. Halo with an edge. Brilliant.”

Leslie elaborates, “My intention is to create jewelry that makes a strong statement. My hope is that the women who wear my pieces draw from this strength and feel more powerful. I hear from my customers that this happens, and I love it! [Like my jewelry, they can’t be ignored.] My new Edge-Set Halo Collection continues this empowerment.”

Retailers can contact Leslie directly to schedule trunk shows and receive line sheets.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
