The drawings are of vintage designs up to the 1960s.

Hundreds of vintage jewelry sketches will be put on public display for the first time at Sotheby’s London, according to Blouin Art Info. The article says the drawings are “preparatory sketches before items were hand-made by Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels and famous ‘maisons.’” They also “attest to the skills of often anonymous, unsung artists who crafted the look of the Tutti Frutti and Egyptian-style jewels by Cartier.” The exhibition, called “Masters of Design,” features designs from the last century up to the 1960s and come from a private collection of 3,000 jewelry documents.

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
