Susan Silver’s A Perfect Marriage of Silver and Gold


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



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.

Thomas Sabo Third Eye Chakra pendant


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.

Sterling silver bangle  from Gabriel & Co.



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.

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.”
