Necklace from Camellia Westbury


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.

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.”
