TAYLOR SWIFT MADE history at the 2024 Grammys as a four-time recipient of the Best Album award for Midnights. Before that,  she was tied for three wins with Frank Sinatra, Paul Simon and Stevie Wonder. She also is the only female solo artist to win the award this many times. Are you wondering when I am going to get to the jewelry, which, in my estimation was best of the evening? (She was, however, neck-and-neck with Dua Lipa, about whom I will write in an upcoming post.) But let’s stick with Swift for now. She wore a strapless white Schiaparelli gown with a bodice tied in the back and a long train with opera-length black gloves, and while the gown itself was a winner, it seemed to fade into the background of the jewels. The 300 carats of multiple graduated Lorraine Schwartz black-and-white diamond necklaces seemed to echo the winning album. The most alluring piece, created by Schwartz, was a customized Art Deco Concord watch with a white diamond bezel mounted east to west in the middle of a black diamond choker. It was set to midnight in an apparent nod to her historical winning album.

The layering was so good. Next came a white diamond necklace resting just below the watch necklace, followed by a black pear shape dripping from another all-around diamond dazzler. The last piece might have been an ultra-long necklace worn doubled in irregular shapes of flat-cut diamonds.

This isn’t the first time we have seen a celebrity wearing a watch as a choker. In 2023, Rihanna wore a Jacob & Co. baguette-set Brilliant Flying Tourbillon when Pharrell Williams presented his first Louis Vuitton menswear collection show in Paris.

Then at the 2024 Spring Summer fashion week in Paris, Emma Chamberlain wore a Cartier Baignoire on a leather strap as a choker to the Miu Miu show. Rihanna has launched some iconic trends, but my guess is that she has some competition in the “watch as a choker” category. I believe that after Swift’s big evening, Swifties will be imitating her look and it will filter out into the fashion, jewelry and timepiece spaces. We may soon be seeing a range of high to low and vintage to modern interpretations of the look.

In any case, it was a dazzling night to remember.

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
