FROM THE LEGEND of King Midas to the 24K gold leaf on this writer’s very own iPhone case, humans have been obsessed with gold pretty much forever. And for good reason: its luscious hue, its malleability, the way it warms when worn against the skin — gold offers a lot to love. Nothing says classic luxury more than the gleam of gold.

Right Angles Create Unexpected Magic

There’s almost nothing more exciting in design than a well-placed angle: two crisp lines meeting in just the right way, creating an unexpected shape. The art deco era set the bar high for geometric jewelry, but today’s contemporary jewelry holds its own when it comes to clean, sharp, ultra-chic angles. These yellow gold pieces are sleek, interesting, and packed with style.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
