About Us

About Us:

Bling by Wilkening is a fine costume, 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 jewelry of superb quality at the cutting-edge of fashion, with excellent prices.

We are headquartered in New York City, so that we may bring you the latest in trend reporting, and offer you unparalleled collections of exceptional and unique couture costume and semi-precious jewelry three to six months before the magazines report on the trends.

Our founder and designer, Whitney Wilkening, has consulted with the jewelry company in London, Garrard, who created the Crown Jewels, and was jeweler to the English Royal family for over 300 years, to ensure that our stones, clasps, findings, and finsishings are crafted and the finest diamond jewelry in the world is. 

Each piece of jewelry must adhere to a certain weight-content requirement, and all of our pieces are rigorously tested for metallic color-stay and durability.

Our jewelry is crafted finest materials, including platings of both precious rhodium, a memeber of the platinum family, as well as 14 and 18 karat yellow gold. We use the finest-grade cubic zirconia stones, and they are hand-cut and hand-faceted as the finest diamonds are. We also use multi-faceted fancy-cut brilliant cyrstals. Our stones are faceted to maximize light refractivity, and are comparable to those of the most finely cut diamonds. A detail of superb quality, found only in the finest diamond and precious jewelry, are gold prongs to enhance the natural hues of canary diamonds and emerlads. Our Emerald-Cut Emerlad Green Ring and Canary Victorian Teardrops are perfectly complimented by gold prongs.

Each of our pieces comes in a lovely gift box with a satin bow and lining. The pieces are exquisite and unique and make stunning gifts!

Couture Collections:

English Estate Collection

Our English Estate Collection is inspired by a recent trip to London to examine specific elements of the Crown Jewels. This collection is also inspired by heirloom estate pieces at the Victoria and Albert Museum.

This collection is the result of meticulous research into the archives of the Victoria and Albert Museum as well as the Crown Jewels at the Tower of London. The pieces have been reinterpreted from the detailed study of originals, recreating specific elements with adaptations for contemporary haute couture.

Wedding Couture Collection

Our Wedding Couture collection consists of illustrious and regal jewels that will be the ultimate adornment to your gown. The collection features pieces inspired by royal wedding silhouettes, and elements of grandeur. The pieces are ideal for bridesmaids and bridesmaids’ presents, as well as mother-of-the bride and mother-of-the groom. Our stylists will consult with you to find the perfect pieces for the most exciting day of your life. Please contact us if you wish to have a private and complimentary consultation.
