(Press Release)
CRANSTON, RI — During April 2016, in honor of Autism Awareness Month, jewelry designer Chamilia, a Swarovski Company, announced that it will continue to support its program to donate 5 percent of proceeds from its “Autism Puzzle Piece” charm to the Autism Research Institute.

The brand became interested in supporting these efforts after learning that in 2012 the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) announced that one in 68 people under the age of 21 living in the U.S. has been identified with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This number continues to increase, as a more recent CDC National Health Interview Survey suggests that one in 45 children, ages 3 through 17, now have been diagnosed with ASD.

“Everything we create at the Chamilia brand is supportive of women’s lives in some way, some items especially so,” says Catherine Ottaviano, Chamilia’s vice president of global merchandising and marketing. “Autism awareness is a cause we continue to support because the lives of so many people are impacted by this condition. We all need to be a part of the solution to serious issues.”

There are more than 400 exclusive charms available from the Chamilia brand. The line is made from sterling silver or 14 karat gold and features genuine Swarovski Crystals, Swarovski Zirconia or Murano Glass that is handmade using the finest ingredients. The brand follows strict Swarovski guidelines for quality and aesthetic standards.

The “Autism Puzzle Piece” charm from Chamilia is a sterling silver representation of a piece from a puzzle and retails for $35. The charm symbolizes the need to develop a greater understanding of the condition of autism and its impact on our society.

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.”
