This Runway and Jewelry Trend Is Clear as Black and White

All colors of the rainbow were still going strong on fall/winter 2018/19 runways, but distinctive graphic looks in black and white made an equally bold statement. Jewelry designers have been creating a trend in blackened metals accented with white diamonds for some time in geometric and linear forms, as well as more fluid lines. These looks continue in popularity in everything from fringe earrings to contemporary takes on the riviere necklace.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
