INLAY, A TREND throughout the colorful Mod ‘60s and the freedom and feminist movement of the ‘70s, is reimagined today with a bohemian elegance by both indie and established jewelry designers. Recognized most in Native American jewelry, which was popular during those decades, it has received an artistic makeover that allows faceted gems to be set into opaque stones and different shapes to be featured in one piece of jewelry.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
