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.

Thinking of Liquidating? Wilkerson’s Got You Covered

Bil Holehan, the manager of Julianna’s Fine Jewelry in Corte Madera, Calif., decided to go on to the next chapter of his life when the store’s owner and namesake told him she was set to retire. Before they left, Holehan says they decided to liquidate some of the store’s aging inventory. They chose Wilkerson for the sale. Why? “Friends had done their sales with Wilkerson and they were very satisfied,” says Holehan. He’d enthusiastically recommend Wilkerson to anyone looking to stage a liquidation or going-out-of-business sale. “There were no surprises,” he says. “They were very professional in their assessment of our store, what we could expect from the sale and they were very detailed in their projections. They were pretty much on the money.”
