The Contemporary Jewelry Design Group (CJDG) has announced the members of its new executive board for the term of 2016-2018.

I would love to see us, this amazing group of talented designers, figure out a way to give back. I was raised knowing that giving charity and being philanthropic was not just a ‘good thing to do’ but essential. There are many ways that we as an association, can increase our involvement with charities and other organizations to enrich our world.”

Sara Freedenfeld of Amali will be the new vice president. Rebecca Overmann of Rebecca Overmann Jewelry, and Elizabeth and Jack Gualtieri of Zaffiro continue as members of the executive board. Vicente Agor of Vicente Agor Precious Jewelry also continues as the CJDG Couture committee chair.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
