Stripes and Patterns Take These Styles to the Edge




Motor sports, racing stripes and the sleek lines of the art deco movement provide inspiration for the graphic mixed-media effect of ready-to-wear on the spring 2017 runways as well as in the design studios of emerging and established jewelry talents. Stones cut into geometric shapes and mixed metals and enameling result in styles that focus on striped or color-blocked patterns. Whether linear or squared off, these looks are current with an edgy modernity.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
