Welcome to Wilke’s Estate Jewelry – Carmel by the Sea

Dear Friends,

The time has come for us to start a new chapter of our lives together as we close our beautiful shop in this very memorable place, Carmel-by-the-Sea. The past 15 years have been such a blessing for us. We’ve been able to do work that we love and carry on the legacy of Gilbert Wilke and his family, which we hope we’ve done well. Most of all, we’ve been blessed to get to know and become friends with you. That’s the part of our journey we’ve cherished the most.

As of January 6, 2024 we closed our doors to our location. Over the next few months we intend to let you know about some beautiful pieces of jewelry that we are planning to price attractively, so please be on the lookout for those announcements on our website.  In addition to watching for upcoming offers, please let us know if you are looking for something specific for yourself or someone in your life at email@wilkesjewels.com.  As many of you know, we have spent much of our lives carefully curating distinctive, classic, heirloom-quality vintage and non-vintage items specifically for the discriminating collector, and we will continue to do our best to accommodate you.  We will certainly miss greeting and spending time with you as you walk through the door of our store on San Carlos Street, but this is not a goodbye.

Thank you for your business, your support, and most of all your friendship.

With every good wish,

Pam & Phil 

“Great customer service and beautiful jewelry! Met both owners yesterday and they both were very kind. I would definitely recommend walking through the store if you are shopping for any type of jewelry or even if you are just browsing around Carmel.”
