Winning bids will be announced June 3.

(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

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
