One of the Most Enchanting Emerging Trends of 2018 is Sultry, Spiritual and a Little Eerie

These designs are bold and utterly compelling.

A sultry and spiritual look is taking hold in the jewelry world, with a darker mood than the fantastical themes we’ve seen in recent years.

Think mystical fortune-tellers, Ouija boards, a sisterhood of modern witches dancing under the full moon. These designs are bold, sometimes a little eerie, and utterly compelling.

With the Vegas shows fast approaching, our style expert, Becky Stone, sees dark magic jewelery as an emerging trend trend, and some of our Brain Squad members agree. 

“We have been seeking a line in this category,” says Jennifer Farnes of Revolution Jewelry Works in Colorado Springs, CO. “People are starting to come out of their shells and outwardly display jewelry that reflects their home decor.”

Among 226 storeowners and managers we recently surveyed, 11 percent said they plan to stock dark magic jewelry for the holidays.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
