TC.850 Carbon Fiber collection from Triton


Aerodynamic lines and high performance materials are making the leap from cutting edge autos to jewelry. Men’s line Triton uses strong, lightweight elements that usually show up in racecars. Its latest, the TC.850 Carbon Fiber collection, is scratch-resistant and composed of a blend of hardwearing metals, plus woven and inlay details that have driver’s seat style.

Hammered collection from Coralia Leets


The process of making jewelry is just as important as its raw materials. Coralia Leets’ recent work centers on the idiosyncratic charm of hammered, irregular surfaces. Crafted in sterling silver with oxidized or gold-plated finishes, the Hammered collection includes bohemian earrings with shimmering drops, oversize gemstone pendants and petite open cuff bangles.

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.”
