Vegas Must-Haves #1: Creative Approaches Give Pearls a Modern Presence

Forget the prim-and-proper looks of the past.




Heading out to Vegas for Jewelry Week? Here are some of the trends we are predicting you will see and that you might want to bring into your store. Some have been going strong for a few seasons, while others have been evolving for a couple of years. All are popular from the red carpet to the ready-to-wear runways to the jewelry design studios. So, why not try your luck with this trend or the others we will be showing?

Pearls have dusted off their preppy and/or prim and proper image for a more creative approach to rare and exceptional-quality pearls. Today’s South Sea, Tahitian, baroque and Akoya pearls come out of their conventional shell with a fanciful, feminine, edgy or rough-hewn appeal. Designers create pieces with a modern presence and a more personalized approach that is far from the traditional looks of the past.

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.”
