When Kirsten Dunst recently got engaged to actor Jesse Plemons, many of us noticed that the A-list actress’ diamond engagement ring is yellow gold.

Precious yellow metal — a throwback aesthetic to the 70s and 80s — is fast becoming a choice for many modern brides. Of course, for Todd Reed, an award-winning Colorado jewelry designer, it’s been one of his go-to metals for decades. I’m especially loving some of Reed’s newest yellow gold bridal rings, just unveiled for spring — particularly those with brown, champagne and autumnal color diamonds that are highly wearable tone-on-tone monochromatic designs.

FYI: On Sunday night, when Dunst, a “Hidden Figures” co-star, walks the red carpet of the 89th annual Academy Awards — the film is nominated for Best Picture — I’ll be taking special note of the rest of Dunst’s jewelry, to see if she chooses yellow or white gold. Will she or won’t try to metal-match her new betrothal ring? We’ll be watching. www.toddreed.com.

Two-Time Winner

When it was time to close its doors, Cranstoun Court Jewellers of Sun City, Arizona chose Wilkerson to handle its liquidation sale. For all involved, the sale “far exceeded expectations.” But it wasn’t the first time Wilkerson helped sell off the store’s aging merchandise. They were there 13 years before, when ownership changed hands. See how Wilkerson can help you when it’s time to liquidate or sell off aging inventory.
