PICCHIOTTI Launches Xpandable Cocktail Collection

(PRESS RELEASE) VALENZA, ITALY — PICCHIOTTI, the Valenza based Italian high jewelry brand, announced the launch of its new Xpandable Cocktail Collection, featuring a wide variety of cocktail ring designs with the brand’s signature superlative gemstones. The Xpandable cocktail rings rely on the patented technology* that allows the rings to expand and contract, making them comfortable to wear on any finger with no ring sizing required. Priced between $10,000 – $370,000, each ring can expand up to 2.5 U.S. sizes, slipping easily over the knuckle. In addition, new PICCHIOTTI Masterpieces cocktail rings highlight the beauty of precious gemstones (rubies, sapphires, emeralds, and diamonds) in stunning statement pieces, each hand-crafted in Italy, priced from $150,000 up.

“Cocktail rings have again become a symbol of female empowerment, much like they were in the roaring ‘20s when they emerged during the Prohibition Era as a female self-purchase phenomenon,” says Maria Carola Picchiotti, marketing director of PICCHIOTTI. “The new Xpandable and Masterpieces cocktail rings make glorious gifts, but more importantly, they offer women fun, colorful ways to express their style with luxury, comfort, and ease.”

The PICCHIOTTI Xpandable line has been successfully bringing comfort and ease to luxury jewelry consumers for over seven years now, enhancing the daily lives of women around the world. The new cocktail rings are engineered for durability and comfortable wear. The rings feature a colorful gem center, often haloed with precisely re-cut baguette diamonds – another signature element of PICCHIOTTI style. They can also be worn seamlessly with luxury watches or bridal rings and wedding bands. The distinctive new designs are contemporary and fun, while continuing to honor the classic tradition of this internationally esteemed and refined fine jewelry house.

When There’s No Succession Plan, Call Wilkerson

Bob Wesley, owner of Robert C. Wesley Jewelers in Scottsdale, Ariz., was a third-generation jeweler. When it was time to enjoy life on the other side of the counter, he weighed his options. His lease was nearing renewal time and with no succession plan, he decided it was time to call Wilkerson. There was plenty of inventory to sell and at first, says Wesley, he thought he might try to manage a sale himself. But he’s glad he didn’t. “There’s no way I could have done this as well as Wilkerson,” he says. Wilkerson took responsibility for the entire event, with every detail — from advertising to accounting — done, dusted and managed by the Wilkerson team. “It’s the complete package,” he says of the Wilkerson method of helping jewelers to easily go on to the next phase of their lives. “There’s no way any retailer can duplicate what they’ve done.”
