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.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
