Necklace from Camellia Westbury

INSIDE AND OUT

Layering is always a smart strategy for stylish dressing, whether it involves clothes or jewelry. Camellia Westbury’s pieces place semiprecious stones within jeweled cages, for a layered effect with tons of dimension and versatility. The handmade pieces have a bohemian, artful look and each one is different from the next. Designs from the Quantum collection feature a collage of neutral stones — amber, crystal quartz, smoky quartz, red agate, yellow jade and hematite — that are indispensible year-round. camelliawestbury.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.
