NEW YORK, NY – Fine jeweler Doryn Wallach has been named one of Centurion’s 2016 Emerging Designers. After the entrants for Centurion’s annual Emerging Designer Competition were narrowed down to 10 finalists by a panel of jewelry industry experts, three winners were chosen by the Centurion Advisory Board, with Doryn Wallach named among them.

Wallach made her United States trade show debut at Centurion, showcasing alongside a wide array of designers from other first-timers to established industry veterans. Centurion is an invitation-only event for high-end jewelers.

“It was an honor to be chosen as one of Centurion’s 2016 Emerging Designers,” says Wallach. “The show itself was an amazing experience. Being surrounded by such talent was inspiring, and I am so grateful to have been able to further connect with such an incredible and supportive community.”

Wallach’s debut collection features designs in 18k gold with satin finish surrounding Art Deco-inspired gems, such as black onyx, turquoise, pearl, red coral, and white and black diamonds.

Wallach’s entry into the jewelry industry was a natural progression. After nearly two decades as an interior designer, Doryn Wallach transferred her creative energy to fine jewelry. Her premiere collection is the direct result of several years of redesigning antique heirlooms gifted from family members while perfecting her craft. Wallach’s jewelry education includes her studies at the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), Jewelry Arts Institute and International School of Gemology. Her passion for Art Deco, interior décor, architecture and antique jewelry is apparent in her design.

A graduate of New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology, Wallach explains how her former career influenced her decision to take the leap into jewelry design. “Creating unique interiors by employing complementary forms, textures, colors and layers always came naturally to me, and I’m now using those skills with precious materials to adorn bodies rather than rooms,” she says.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
