Morris Adwar, founder of ALA Casting, Alarama Jewelry and Overnight Mountings, died on Feb. 15, his family announced.

He was 96.

Adwar, who was widely recognized as a pioneer in the jewelry industry, was president of the NY Caster’s Association and an active member of the NY 24KT Club.

He was a generous philanthropist who devoted his time and finances to religion, the Or Chadash Girls school in Israel, and the jewelry industry, his family said.

As a World War II, Adwar flew over 60 combat missions in the Pacific Theatre as a tail gunner and a bombardier on a B17 Flying Fortress, his family noted.

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
