Opening Lines: July 2016





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

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.

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.

and Tahitian cultured
pearl ring, MSRP


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.

Casablanca octagon wire bangle in sterling silver
with London blue spinel (5.85 TCW) and Swiss
blue topaz (1.80 TCW), MSRP: $500



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.

Swarovski crystals on a 20-inch
chain, MSRP: $395

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
