The Auction

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

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.
