(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.

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
