(Press Release) NEW YORK, NY — Fine jewelry designer and entrepreneur Dana Bronfman was honored with Fashion Group International’s much-celebrated Rising Star Award for Fine Jewelry. The award was presented by Executive Accessories Editor Amanda Weiner Alagem of Harper’s Bazaar, and the star-studded event included a keynote speech by Whoopi Goldberg. Industry heavyweights including designer Prabal Gurung, New York Fashion Week founder Fern Mallis and entrepreneur and philanthropist Aerin Lauder were in attendance.

“I am thrilled beyond my wildest dreams to be recognized in front of my peers at FGI’s Rising Star Awards. I would like to thank Margaret Hayes and the entire Fashion Group International organization for their support,” Bronfman said. Additional awards were presented at the luncheon for beauty, womenswear, menswear, retail and home furnishing.

This award came as Dana Bronfman Fine Jewelry launched her latest, one-of-a-kind pieces titled “Otherworldly Elements” at JCK Tucson, as a part of her signature Oculus collection. The designs are indicative of the brand’s quietly-bold nature and signature pierced gold and diamond elements, but infused with red-carpet worthy style. The pieces feature unique stones including rutilated quartz, grey and raw rose cut diamonds, and dome-shape chyrsocolla.

Dana Bronfman Fine Jewelry will be on display at a Paris Fashion Week pop-up shop in Le Marais from March 1-8, with appointments available for both buyers and consumers alike from March 4-8. The brand will be participating in Metal & Smith’s #notatradeshow on May 8, and is available by appointment at the new showroom space in Midtown Manhattan.

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.”
