(PRESS RELEASE) LAS VEGAS, NV — Joy and excitement resonated throughout the Wynn Las Vegas as prominent retailers, influential media and exceptional designers and brands gathered for the 2022 event. An enthusiasm to reunite in person was apparent and the shared appreciation for excellence in design and craftsmanship established a celebratory reunion among this tight-knit community.

“It feels fantastic to be back at the Wynn Las Vegas,” enthused Gannon Brousseau, COUTURE director and EVP, Emerald. “Our new event space is a phenomenal backdrop for the exceptional collections of our talented designers and brands and having the opportunity to enjoy one another’s company in person is invaluable.”

Mimicking that sentiment was Yael Reinhold from Reinhold Jewelers in Puerto Rico, “The show has such positive energy! Everyone is so happy to be back and really eager to buy! I am seeing so much incredible jewelry; I’m delighted to be here.”

“COUTURE is the highlight of our year,” said Peggy Buckhan of Steve Quick Jeweler in Chicago. “I love seeing all of the designers we carry and getting a first look at their most recent collections. It’s also so fun discovering new talent. And as always, COUTURE is fabulous, everything is amazing.”

The salons, ballrooms and villas saw steady traffic throughout the day and the exhibiting designers and brands were excited that the retailers they were meeting with were motivated to place orders. “It’s been absolutely phenomenal,” explained Wendy Adeler Hall of Jorge Adeler. “We’re seeing so many great stores and there’s a lot of intentional buying. There’s so much great energy and people are serious about restocking and getting back to business.”

“We have been busy all day, it’s been so amazing,” said Meredith Young, an exhibitor in the event’s Design Atelier. “I’m so excited for the rest of the show!”

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
