Sarah Jessica Parker Lives Up to Her Iconic Style at 2023 NYC Ballet Gala

Her look included Fred Leighton rings, large Kwiat stud earrings and a Vacheron Constantin watch.




BEFORE I GET to the jewelry that will be the gist of this article, I have to talk about mismatched shoes, since Sarah Jessica Parker’s character Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City was obsessed with them. When she shows up wearing the same shoe in two different colors with rhinestone buckles like her character in the “Escape From New York” episode of the HBO series, in which the gal pals went to Los Angeles, it’s worth a mention. In 2020, she also sold a similar mismatched pair in her shoe brand, SJP Collection, in two colors. “And just like that,” the ingenious mismatch could very well launch a new trend in footwear.

Now that I have rambled on about the iconic, style-setting actress’s feet, let’s talk about the jewels she wore with her off-the-shoulder Carolina Herrera dress: Fred Leighton rings, large Kwiat stud earrings and a Vacheron Constantin watch. It was just the right amount of jewelry, and in the perfect style, for the outfit and the event.

A description of the watch on the Vacheron Constantin website reads: “Heures Créatives Heure Romantique in White Gold. Inspired by a piece from 1916 created during the Belle Époque and Art Nouveau period, this 18K white gold watch celebrates that romantic era. It is set with 123 round-cut diamonds and features a mother-of-pearl dial with painted Roman numerals. The timepiece is supplied with a satin strap featuring a diamond-set folding clasp, and a leather strap.”

The watch went well with the rings, which included Fred Leighton early 20th century diamond and platinum styles worn with Fred Leighton Signature (designed in-house and inspired by antique and vintage jewelry) and Kwiat diamond rings.

The entire look was a hit for the ballet gala, and the jewelry offered an aspirational look that could easily translate into collectible pieces for those who desire authentic antique/vintage or vintage-inspired styles that are romantic and feminine.




When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
