(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

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
