(PRESS RELEASE) VALENZA, ITALY – Valenza based, award-winning Italian jewelry brand Picchiotti announced that the technology behind its innovative and successful Xpandable Collection has officially been granted a 20-year U.S. jewelry patent. The invisible technology, which allows both precious gemstone bracelets and rings to expand and contract for comfortable and durable wear, is now protected against counterfeit by US law. The 200+ designs in the Xpandable line are available at fine jewelers nationwide and distributed through the Picchiotti US office in Atlanta, Georgia.

“My family and I are incredibly proud to have been awarded a rare and meaningful U.S. jewelry patent,” says President and Founder Giuseppe Picchiotti. “We knew from the beginning that the genius of this technology was special and that it would ensure long-lasting comfort for our customers. The patent now sanctions the originality of our invention and ensures that Xpandable customers can be confident they are getting a genuine Picchiotti creation.”

Having launched in early 2016 with roughly a dozen styles, the Xpandable Collection has been enormously successful since its inception. The revolutionary line of diamond and gemstone jewelry now comprises over 200 designs in bracelets and rings that expand and contract, cleverly solving the problem of sizing in rings and the problem of cumbersome clasps in bracelets. Many years of dedication, research and development have perfected the technology to ensure both comfort and durability, as well as the excellence in design and manufacturing for which the Picchiotti brand is known worldwide. The patent will protect consumers against counterfeits.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Gone Fishin’ (Thanks to Wilkerson)

Whether you want to go fishing — or enjoy some of the other good things life has to offer — you can take a cue from Jim Adair and choose Wilkerson to run your retirement sale. After 38 years in business, Adair decided it was time to enjoy some free time. His Missoula, Montana store, Adair Jewelers, will stay in business but without him at the helm. It was the perfect opportunity to call in the experts in retirement sales. Adair says he spoke to a lot of people who have done retirement sales to help him make his decision and he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson seemed to have the best set up, the best organization, the most current marketing of any of them,” he says. “If you want to run a successful sale, you have too much money on the line to be screwing around with trying to do it yourself.”
