(Press Release) The Contemporary Jewelry Design Group in association with the COUTURE Show announced that the inaugural Cindy Edelstein Memorial Charity Auction will go live online beginning May 15.

This online auction of jewelry donated by CJDG members will be open for bids until 4 p.m. June 3. At 6:30 p.m. on June 3, the winning bids will be announced during a cocktail hour at the Wynn Resort in the Sunset Hallway outside the COUTURE ballrooms.

Proceeds from the auction will be donated to Jewelers For Children and to the Women’s Jewelry Association’s Cindy Edelstein Scholarship Fund. For many years, Cindy ran a similar auction in Las Vegas; this auction is both a tribute to her and a way for CJDG to give back to the jewelry community.

The auction site is http://auction.cjdg.jewelry. Currently in preview mode only, on May 15 the site will be open for bids.

Bidding is open to consumers and everyone in the jewelry industry, and winning bidders do not have to present at COUTURE.
CJDG thanks Andrea Hill and StrategyWerx for their donation of the programming for the auction site.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
