Five Fresh Jewelry Designs for November





The Ourika collection takes POLLY WALES’ signature “cast, not set” style to a whole new level, maintaining the wild, eclectic patterns that fans of the brand already love and adding in symmetrical details inspired by the mysticism and artistic traditions of nomadic desert tribes. The result is an irresistible mix of chaos and order embodied in bright gemstones and rich yellow gold.

18K gold with sapphires (3.70 TCW), baguette diamonds (0.25 TCW), and moonstones (2.80 TCW) MSRP: $10,900




The delectable designs of DELPHINE LEYMARIE’s new Bohème collection are a perfect example of the best that alternative bridal has to offer. The collection, with its delightful textures and unexpected colors, offers consumers many of the hallmarks of traditional bridal jewelry in an incarnation that is truly fresh. Too fabulous to offer only to fiancées, these bohemian beauties are sure to appeal to quirky color lovers of all sorts.

Reclaimed 18K rose gold and 1.48-ct. pink tourmaline MSRP: $2,297


The ALEX WOO Little Elements collection takes the wildly successful charm of Alex Woo’s existing collections and distills the design down to geometric elements: a square, a triangle, a hexagon, a chevron. The pieces are available in sterling silver, yellow gold, and white gold, with diamonds or without; price points starting under $150 mean this collection has something for everyone. Refreshing simplicity, beautifully rendered.

14K white gold with diamonds MSRP: $1,098


The Mosaic collection from GUMUCHIAN offers the brand’s trademark combination of elegance and strength in designs featuring carved mosaic tiles in soft hues with floral gold and diamond embellishments. The collection is inspired by designer Patricia Gumuchian’s visit to Ravenna, Italy — she sought to capture the feeling of being surrounded by timeless beauty in a faraway land.

18K yellow gold with crystal, mother of pearl, mosaic tile, and diamonds (0.19 TCW) MSRP: $6,000



ANZIE’s ethereal designs take on a darkly romantic bent in this new collection, characterized by the use of Silver Noir, or black rhodium-plated sterling silver. Paired with black spinel, dreamy moonstone and white and blue topaz, the darker metal brings extra edge and depth to these easy-to-love designs. Perfect for pairing with colder weather but still translatable to spring once the calendar rolls back around.

Black rhodium-plated sterling silver with topaz and sapphire MSRP: $750

Wilkerson Testimonials

When It’s Time for Something New, Call Wilkerson

Fifty-four years is a long time to stay in one place. So, when Cindy Skatell-Dacus, owner of Skatell’s Custom Jewelers in Greenville, SC decided to move on to life’s next adventure, she called Wilkerson. “I’d seen their ads in the trade magazines for years,’ she says, before hiring them to run her store’s GOB sale. It was such a great experience, Skatell-Dacus says it didn’t even seem like a sale was taking place. Does she have some advice for others thinking of a liquidation or GOB sale? Three words, she says: “Wilkerson. Wilkerson. Wilkerson.”
