Platinum is Always the Only Choice for This Customer Type

THE PLATINUM PURIST may have become so by choice or out of necessity due to allergic reactions to alloys like nickel. However, once the wearer feels its weight and learns about its characteristics, longevity and eventual patina, she longs to fill her jewelry box with glorious jewels created from it.

1. Patek Philippe

The Platinum Purist puts quality first and watches are no exception. She only purchases watch brands that are known for their history and availability in her favorite metal.

The “Golden Ellipse” in platinum measures 34.5mm x 39.5mm and features a blue-gold sunburst dial, alligator strap in navy blue and an ultra-thin self-winding Caliber 240 movement.

2. Omi Prive

While her pieces have a common theme with regard to the metal in which they’re made, this platinum lover goes from big to small and all sizes in between when it comes to the types of jewels she chooses.

Sapphire and diamond stud earrings in platinum with blue sapphires (1.22 TCW) surrounded by 32 diamonds (0.10 TCW) set halo-style.

3. Gem Platinum

Since the Platinum Purist sees her jewelry purchases as investments, she collects pieces that can be worn in more than one way so that she always gives the appearance of showcasing something fresh and new.

30-inch handmade platinum and diamond chain with 54 marquise-cut diamonds (approx. 8.10 TCW) and 18 round brilliant cut diamonds (0.90 TCW).

$32,500

4. Picchiotti

While the Platinum Purist seems traditional, she prides herself on going against the grain by wearing what she loves rather than what’s in fashion. Long before it became a trend, she donned an anniversary ring with a sapphire center stone, set in — what else — her favorite metal.

Platinum ring containing one 14.16-carat octagonal vivid royal blue Sri Lankan sapphire and round, square, and baguette accent diamonds (3.52 TCW).

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
