The Auction

When the Contemporary Jewelry Design Group (CJDG) considered how we wanted to honor the memory of our dear friend Cindy Edelstein, the answer wasn't hard to find. Cindy was all about supporting designers, supporting the industry, and generosity. So CJDG created this auction, in association with Couture, to allow each of us to donate something we have made, and use those creations to raise money for others.

The proceeds from the Cindy Edelstein Memorial Auction will be used to benefit Jewelers for Children and the Women's Jewelry Association Scholarship Fund. We can think of no better way to memorialize Cindy's legacy of giving.

The Beneficiaries

Jewelers for Children is a non-profit founded in 1999 by the U.S. jewelry industry with the mission of helping children in need. Since its inception, JFC has donated more than $51 million to programs serving children whose lives have been affected by illness, abuse, or neglect.

The Women's Jewelry Association established the "Cindy Edelstein Jewelry Design Scholarship" in 2016 to honor Cindy's unwavering commitment to the WJA and the careers of women. This scholarship, in the amount of $5,000, is awarded annually.


Donations for the Cindy Edelstein Memorial Auction are being accepted through May 15, 2018. If you want to help commemorate Cindy while serving the jewelry industry, this is a terrific way to do so. Click here to launch the submission form.
