Susan Silver’s A Perfect Marriage of Silver and Gold

WEDDED BLISS

In the best relationships, each partner gets a chance to shine without overshadowing the other. Susan Silver’s A Perfect Marriage of Silver and Gold strikes a happy balance between both metals. Made from sterling silver and an overlay of 14K gold, some of the designer’s textured, contemporary pieces make silver the focus, others do the same for gold, and sometimes they share the spotlight equally.

Fortuna Heart pavé ring from John Atencio

ISN’T IT LOVELY

Heart jewelry might be a no-brainer for Valentine’s Day but, really, there’s never an occasion when it doesn’t strike the right note of affection — the classic shape can signal friendship or romantic attachment. John Atencio’s Fortuna Heart designs give a youthful twist to the motif with subtle metal combinations and clean, contemporary styling. johnatencio.com

Thomas Sabo Third Eye Chakra pendant

GOOD ENERGY

Thomas Sabo believes the power of gems can elevate the spirit, which led him to create a fine jewelry collection with stones that correspond to colors from the Hindu system of seven chakras. It includes a range of hues from milky quartz (said to promote serenity) to intense red garnet (to foster trust and stability), but seeing the finely crafted pieces is all that’s required to appreciate them. thomassabo.com

Sterling silver bangle  from Gabriel & Co.

THE GRAY ZONE

Pale diamonds pack a powerful punch in the Shadowplay collection from Gabriel & Co. Brimming with of-the-moment sterling silver silhouettes — hello, ear climbers and y-necklaces — and dark rhodium plating that makes each stone stand out, the pieces are glamorous and completely un-stodgy, and at less than $1,000, even the most bejeweled pendant is a guilt-free splurge. gabrielny.com

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
