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.

*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

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.”
