Since Rihanna landed on the music scene, there is no pop star that has created as many trends in jewelry. And when RiRi wears a choker or a lariat, women young and more mature take notice. She’s got a style that says “I do what I please and wear what I like” by mixing renowned jewelry houses with independent designers, and it all turns out looking unstudied yet utterly chic. Therefore, if you want to make your customers happy, you will watch her closely and see what her newest style-setting looks are and what direction she is influencing.

At the Met Gala on September 13, 2021, in her Balenciaga cape and sparkly forehead, she was draped in white diamonds and platinum. Three Bulgari High Jewelry necklaces were draped around her neck, but she also didn’t miss a beat with the smaller, independent designers. She kept the ear party going with Bulgari in her main holes in her lobes; she then chose Paris-based Maria Tash’s diamond styles to climb up her ears in graduated style. It’s a streamlined, elegant look. She also wore the “Rebel” black five-carat pear-shaped diamond ring by Thelma West Diamonds. Pear-shaped stones are back in style, and Rihanna can wear one on her index finger with a chic nonchalance. Take note: statement necklaces, graduated diamond earrings, and one large diamond ring on the index finger to illustrate independent and high style.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
