INTERNATIONAL INTRIGUE

Priyanka Kedia fuses continent-crossing
influences in her brand
AYVA. Born into a
family of jewelers in Mumbai and now living
in San Francisco, she brings the influence
of both, along with her love for European
design to her own jewelry. The result is a
range of exuberantly colorful, imaginative
pieces with an easygoing West Coast edge.

18K gold half-hoops
with diamonds, amethysts
and white and
yellow sapphires,
MSRP: $3,400

LAW OF ATTRACTION

When short on time (or dexterity)
no one wants to fumble with a
bracelet with tough to secure closures.
That’s never the case with
the Wrap collection from
WYS JEWELRY. The pieces feature 18K
gold beads strung on a magnetic
cord that stays in place without a
clasp. And the user-friendly features
don’t end there: they’re the
perfect length for wear as a choker
or around the wrist.

BASKET CASE

MASTOLONI’S CESTINO collection both protects and
reveals the beauty of the pearls it features. Named for
an Italian word meaning “basket,” the pieces envelop
pearls in open 18K frameworks that create a play of
light and shadow along the gems’ surfaces. They’re
available in rings, earrings and pendants.

18K white gold, diamond
and Tahitian cultured
pearl ring, MSRP
$4,290

CASABLANCA FOREVER

Much like the film that shares its name, the Casablanca
collection from JUDITH RIPKA is a classic to revisit
over and over. It perfectly balances contemporary and
vintage sensibilities. Repeating octagonal shapes give
the pieces a cool, minimalist look. And touches of blackened
sterling look almost antique.

A FAMILY AFFAIR

Cookie cutter jewelry doesn’t capture the special qualities
of a one-of-a-kind family the way a customized
piece can. TAKÖHL creates amulets with sculpted
Swarovski crystal birthstones to represent each family
member. Encased behind a glass lens and set in sterling
or 14K gold, each one is a unique collage that will never
be exactly duplicated, just like every family.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
