Honoring Cindy

As we dive into 2017, we look forward to a new year with new traditions. COUTURE’s newest tradition is honoring the life and spirit of Cindy Edelstein through the Cindy Edelstein Award. While Cindy is no longer with us, our desire is that her contagious energy will live on through this award, and that we continue to remember the fearless industry leader and passionate designer advocate that she was.  The inaugural award was posthumously given to Cindy, and accepted by her daughter Remy at the 2016 COUTURE Design Awards. This year, we’re asking for your help in finding our 2017 nominees for this truly important award.

This person should embody the following qualities:

  • A leader in the fine jewelry and timepiece industry
  • Dedication to the success of both upcoming and established brands
  • Demonstration of a longstanding commitment to the COUTURE community and industry at large
  • An inspiration to others through an enthusiastic attitude and unabated vitality

To nominate a person whom you believe lives up to this criteria, please complete the short survey here.

Thank you so much for your time, your consideration, and your effort to keep Cindy’s spirit alive.
