VIOLA DAVIS HAS lit up the red carpet with gorgeous jewels all during awards season. She did it again at the Clooney Foundation for Justice’s “The Albies” event on Sept. 28. Davis wore a stunning off-the-shoulder lavender gown, but the real story was in the jewelry.

It has been an ongoing trend for modern designers to be inspired by Art Deco looks or those of the 1920s and ’30s, and such was the case with these diamond chandelier Cicada earrings and the brand’s wide bangle of rock crystal and diamonds. The bracelet reminded me of the Cartier bangles that Gloria Swanson owned and wore in the film Sunset Boulevard and at a party while waiting to hear if she won an Oscar for her role in the movie as Norma Desmond. She didn’t win, but the jewels sure did. And Davis’s reinvigorated and revamped versions also stood out at the event.

These jewels reflect upon Hollywood’s Golden Age, yet Cicada designed them with a current vibe; they are definitely standout pieces meant for strong, powerful and stylish women like Davis to add to their collections.

When There’s No Succession Plan, Call Wilkerson

Bob Wesley, owner of Robert C. Wesley Jewelers in Scottsdale, Ariz., was a third-generation jeweler. When it was time to enjoy life on the other side of the counter, he weighed his options. His lease was nearing renewal time and with no succession plan, he decided it was time to call Wilkerson. There was plenty of inventory to sell and at first, says Wesley, he thought he might try to manage a sale himself. But he’s glad he didn’t. “There’s no way I could have done this as well as Wilkerson,” he says. Wilkerson took responsibility for the entire event, with every detail — from advertising to accounting — done, dusted and managed by the Wilkerson team. “It’s the complete package,” he says of the Wilkerson method of helping jewelers to easily go on to the next phase of their lives. “There’s no way any retailer can duplicate what they’ve done.”
