Parade’s Regal New Bridal Line and More Releases for June




Fit for a Queen

Meet Your Match

Nataly Aponte is inspired by matches — both their shape and their flammability. The result is a surprisingly diverse, dynamic collection filled with vertical strokes and references to fire. This bold geometry sometimes has an art deco vibe, but the whole of Nataly’s aesthetic is all her own.

Black is the New Black 

The Diamond Essentials Concave Black Collection from Links of London offers everyday diamond jewelry for the customer who wants something a little bit bold: the sparkle of black diamonds. These pieces offer a hint of darkness in an edgy but still accessible array of styles.

Modern Memento Mori 

Alexis Kletjian is already a cult favorite with industry insiders; it’s only a matter of time before the rest of the world falls in love with her work, too. The designer’s latest collection features tiny, irresistible skull motifs in a variety of forms, from charms to slides to cuff bracelets.

Can You Hear These?

Jordana Adrienne’s collection takes inspiration from the way the designer sees the world — and as this designer has synesthesia, the way she sees the world is more unique than most. Her designs are both crisp and flowing; they beg to be worn with a thousand different outfits.

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.”
