(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 Liquidation Is the Best Option, This Legendary Jeweler Chose Wilkerson

George Koueiter & Sons Jewelers, a 65-year old jewelry institution in Grosse Pointe, MI, had always been a mainstay in this suburban Detroit community. But when owners George and Paul Koueiter were ready to retire, they made the decision to close rather than sell. “We decided our best option to do the liquidation sale was Wilkerson,” says Paul Koueiter. The results, says George Koueiter, exceeded expectations and the process was easy. “Wilkerson just kept us in mind,” says George. “They never did anything without asking and whatever they asked us to do was just spot on.”
