"Before David Yurman became the jewelry designer of choice by some of the most well accessorized women in the U.S., he had the support of Meeling Wong, his well-connected National Sales Director who played a strong role in the jewelry brand’s growth. She would go on to mirror her brand development expertise as President of John Hardy before striking out on her own as an in-demand fine jewelry consultant. Cindy Edelstein established Jewelers Resource Bureau with the singular goal of supporting the growth of designer fine jewelry as a retail category, an artform and a community. She has since received multiple accolades from the Women’s Jewelry Association and other important jewelry organizations for her enduring commitment to seeing the accomplishments of emerging jewelry designer.
Cindy and Meeling are just two of the six fine jewelry experts participating in “The Jewelry Business: Launching Your Jewelry Brand in The U.S.”, a panel discussion held on May 2, 2012 at the New York office of the Quebec Government Delegation. Also participating were Theresa Poirier, National Sales Director of Fragments Showroom, one of the leading fine jewelry showrooms in the U.S.; Victoria Gomelsky, editor-in-chief for JCK Magazine and jewelry writer for the New York Times; Randi Molofsky, author of “A Girl’s Guide to Buying Diamonds” and respected fine jewelry journalist for multiple jewelry magazines including National Jeweler and W Magazine; and Karen Lee, Americas Area Manager for global accessories company S.T. Dupont and formerly National Sales Director for Chopard, a main competitor to Cartier.
Over the course of a comprehensive and highly informative hour, these authoritative voices of the U.S. fine jewelry industry shared their expertise to an audience of Quebec’s celebrated jewelry artists who were just beginning their journey into accessing the billion dollar U.S. jewelry industry. "
