necklaces

With its multitudes of lengths and shapes, the necklace is the most variable jewelry category of
them all. Most jewelry collections harbor navel-skimming opera length strands and throat skimming
chains, plus plenty of options in between. It’s time to build on that foundation with pieces on leather
cords, designs with multiple strands and colored gemstones that face front and center.

SHOW SOME SKIN

➤ While it most commonly makes an appearance in
clothing and fashion accessories, leather has reemerged
as a presence in the fine jewelry world. It’s
a particularly popular choice for choker necklaces,
which are in the midst of a revival. But leather’s pliable
touch and tendency to age well makes it a preferred
choice in every imaginable style.

Wilkerson Testimonials

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.”
