Iridescent fabrics turned up on the fall/winter 2018/19 runways in everything from shimmery ‘60s-style shimmy dresses at Balmain to trench coats and cross-shoulder bags at Sies Marjan. The look can go from mystical to sci-fi in ready-to-wear. In jewelry, it translates effortlessly into rainbow and blue moonstone. These gems have been popular since the Victorian era due to their “magical” effects and color, which change with the light.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
