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?

The ethereal allure of the evening sky and the captivating mystery of the planets and outer space have inspired jewelry designers for a number of seasons. Stars, moons, astrological patterns and the textures and colors found as we look up and beyond have all influenced some of the most creative and intriguing celestial jewelry for 2019.

And it’s perfect timing. July 20 will commemorate the 50-year anniversary of the 1969 Apollo 11 moon landing. So we encourage retailers to take note of the imaginative and magical pieces that are orbiting the market today.

*Note: Aristotle Onassis commissioned Ilias Lalaounis to create the original pair of these earrings for Jackie Kennedy Onassis to celebrate the 1969 moon landing. He gave them to her on her 40th birthday. In anticipation of the 50th anniversary of the landing on July 20, 2019, Maria Lalaounis, creative director for the brand, reintroduced the “Apollo earrings” in a slightly different version, sprinkling them with diamonds instead of rubies for the new take on these masterful designs.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
