StyleLab Celebrates a Decade of Providing Emerging Jewelry and Watch Designers




(PRESS RELEASE) For the past decade, StyleLab has proven that product placement on major Hollywood celebrities for red carpet award shows and other events is not only reserved for “the big” jewelry and watch brands. Dubbed the “one-stop jewelry and watch event” by both celebrities and wardrobe stylists, StyleLab Celebrity Styling Events offer designer brands and retailers from around the world the opportunity to showcase their jewelry and watch designs to celebrities and their wardrobe stylists for wear, as well as be seen on the top national entertainment television shows.

In the past 10 years, StyleLab has dressed over 600 celebrities for red carpet events and facilitated 1,800+ jewelry and watch loans. Several notable highlights include Amy Adams (Sharp Objects), Steve Carell (Beautiful Boy), Allison Janney (Mom), Angela Bassett (9-1-1), Zoe Kravitz (Big Little Lies), Yara Shahidi (Black-ish), Debra Messing (Will & Grace), Lily Collins (Les Misérables), Reid Scott (Veep), Laura Prepon and Laverne Cox (Orange is the New Black), Eva Longoria (Empire), Regina King (Seven Seconds), Nicollette Sheridan (Dynasty), Jon Cryer (Justice League Action), Jane Lynch (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), and Mario Lopez (Extra).

StyleLab has also garnered millions of dollars worth of media coverage for participating brands in national press outlets such as Us Weekly, People Magazine, Extra, E! News, Access Hollywood, and Entertainment Tonight, to name a few. Further, many participating brands have been offered major TV show product placement opportunities as a result of being seen by wardrobe stylists attending a StyleLab event. 

From well-known designers to emerging brands, associations and retailers, StyleLab participants have included: Neil Lane, Erica Courtney, DeBeers, Mastoloni, Platinum Guild International, American Gem Trade Association, Hamilton watches, Perrelet watches, Dena Kemp, Susan Eisen, Shaftel Diamond Co., Leo Schachter, Christopher Designs, Jewelry By Gail, Elyse Fine Jewelers, and Dream Choice Jewelry.


StyleLab events are the brainchild of jewelry and style expert Michael O’Connor founder of Style & Substance, Inc., and publicist Niki Ostin, founder of PR Lab, Inc., who addressed the need for celebrity wardrobe stylists looking for interesting and unique jewelry designs that would stand out on the red carpet.

“StyleLab Celebrity Styling Events are well recognized and consistently popular with Hollywood stars and their wardrobe stylists since we showcase pieces from a variety of emerging and established jewelry designers and retailers, each with a unique style – from vintage to modern – to create their preferred looks for events including the Emmys, Golden Globes, SAGs, and Academy Awards,” says O’Connor.

Adds Ostin, “We offer jewelry and watch options during times when stylists and celebrities are actively seeking new designs that haven’t already been showcased multiple times on the red carpet. We even receive requests from celebrities saying the specific piece brought them good luck at an awards show so they want to buy it!”

StyleLab’s upcoming jewelry loaning event will take place prior to the SAG Awards in January.

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.”
