(Press Release) LAS VEGAS — British luxury jeweler Stephen Webster received the Cindy Edelstein award for Human Spirit at the 2017 Couture Design Awards in Las Vegas.

The award was renamed in 2016 in honor of Cindy Edelstein, the designer advocate and industry veteran who passed away suddenly last year. Edelstein’s daughter Remy presented the award in recognition of Webster’s contribution to the jewelry industry, his ongoing support of up-and-coming designers through the British Fashion Council’s Rock Vault platform, his work with numerous charitable organizations and his dedication to ethical sourcing and sustainability.

On accepting the award, Webster paid tribute to the late Edelstein: “I’m lost for words. I feel really emotional here … because obviously I knew Cindy very, very well. I was right there in the beginning when she was the champion of designer jewelry in America, and as a Brit, I always felt very much a part of the spirit that she just passed on to everybody.”INSTORE stephenwebster

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
