Bling by Wilkening is a semi-precious and estate travel jewelry company founded on the three pillars of outstanding quality, great price, and philanthropy. We take great pride in offering the finest quality in the world, at the cutting edge of fashion, with unparalleled prices! In addition to every day wear, our jewelry is ideal for travel. Bling by Wilkening was founded in 2007 from Whitney Wilkening’s desire to offer jewelry that would wear as the finest jewelry, with the same settings and platings, but that would be exceptionally affordable.
Bling by Wilkening jewelry has been featured on the Today Show, Good Morning America, the Oprah Blog and is featured in Kleinfeld Bridal from the hit TV series, Say Yes to the Dress!
Our founder and designer, Whitney Wilkening, has consulted with Garrard of London, the jewelry company who created the Crown Jewels and was jeweler to the English Royal Family for over 300 years. This research ensures that our stones, clasps, findings, and finishings are created as the finest estate jewelry in the world. Our designs are also inspired from research into the archives at the Victoria & Albert
Museum in London, as well as the Crown Jewels.
Each piece of jewelry must adhere to a certain weight content requirement, and all of our pieces are rigorously tested for quality and durability. Our precise quality control system covers every detail including platings, prong settings, clasps and symmetry of faceting on our stones. A detail of superb quality, found only in the finest diamond and precious jewelry, are gold prongs to enhance the natural hues of the various stones. Many of our pieces are complimented by gold prongs.
Bling by Wilkening leads the trends in the industry with the challenge of finding affordable ways to offer travel versions of the rarest stones. Our jewelry is plated with rhodium (platinum) and 14 and 18 karat yellow and rose gold. We plate each item significantly thicker than the industry standard to ensure unparalleled quality and durability.
