He passed away on Dec. 18.

Clyde Duneier Inc., who founded the jewelry firm Clyde Duneier Inc. and left his mark as a philanthropist, has died at age 88. He passed away on Dec. 18.

Duneier was the founder of the Jewelers Charity Fund in 1983, according to an obituary published in the New York Times. In time, that effort led to the creation of Jewelers for Children.

Among his other accomplishments, Duneier “was also responsible for the formation of The Plumb Club, a unique coalition of leading jewelry manufacturers spanning all facets of the jewelry, diamond, and watch industries,” according to the obituary.

New York-based Clyde Duneier Inc.’s website explains that Duneier was the son of Max Duneier, “an Austrian emigrant who arrived in New York City in 1910 with a single suitcase and a lifelong passion for exquisite gemstones.”

Today, the company is operated by the third and fourth generations of Duneiers, according to the site.

The site says the firm “is recognized throughout the industry for unique capabilities in creating proprietary and generic jewelry lines for major retailers.”

Retirement, Anniversary or Going Out of Business Sale? Let Wilkerson Handle the Details

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
