Memorial services for popular writer and jewelry designer advocate Cindy Edelstein will be held at 12 noon on Tuesday, January 26 at the Sinai Free Synagogue in Mount Vernon, NY. Burial will follow at New Mount Lebanon Cemetery in Iselin, NJ.

Edelstein died on Sunday of heart failure at the age of 51. The loss of the popular industry figure has prompted an outpouring of grief from all sectors of the jewelry business.

Shiva hours for Cindy will be held on Tuesday at the home of her brother, Philip Edelstein, in Livingston, NJ and on Wednesday at the home of Cindy’s husband, Frank Stankus, and daughter, Remy Sasha Stankus, in Pelham Manor, NY.

To honor Cindy for her contributions to the jewelry business and to help fill the void left by her sudden loss, an online fundraiser has been created by designer Erica Courtney for the benefit of Cindy’s daughter. Called “Remy’s College Fund”, the fund’s purpose is described in this way:

If you knew Cindy Edelstein — or even just knew about her — then you knew she was a fierce advocate for jewelry designers. She nurtured their talents, pushed them to do better, bolstered their confidence, and raised an entire generation of jewelry designer talent. But that passion and advocacy paled in comparison to her raising of her own daughter, Remy. Cindy had absolutely no intention of leaving that role so soon, so it’s up to all of us who respected and loved her to help continue her work. It’s the best possible way to honor Cindy’s legacy.

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.
