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 Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
