Decorate Your Life!
That’s right! Starting October 23rd, Colleen’s will have a Jewelry Department at our Fort Apache & Tropicana location. We are excited to welcome Cindy West to our Fort Apache Store. Once we have Cindy all set up in our store, we will have some more information and pictures to go along with the addition. For now, learn a little bit about Cindy:
Cindy West began her career in the Jewelry Business in 1976 working at her family’s Estate Jewelry Store and Pawn Shop in Seattle, Washington.
Cindy was recruited in 1980 by Mr. Stanley Golub, owner of Simon Golub and Sons, Inc., a nationwide manufacturer and jewelry wholesaler.
Cindy became their Colored Stone Buyer due to her extensive training in her family’s stores working with Gemologists on a daily basis.
In 1982, she attended The Gemological Institute of America in Residence to acquire her Graduate Gemologist Degree. Upon returning to work, Cindy was given the titles of “Graduate Gemologist” and “Colored Stone and Diamond Buyer” worldwide for Simon Golub and Sons.
Cindy moved to Palm Springs, California in 1989 to open a new family Jewelry Store. Upon her step-father’s untimely passing, Cindy and her husband, Jim, opened their new store on El Paseo in Palm Desert, California. In 2009, Cindy and Jim closed the store to move to Las Vegas.
Cindy was hired as the Jewelry Manger for Lynn’s World Consignment in Las Vegas. After leaving in 2012, Cindy joined Red Rock Jewelers as their company Gemologist and Buyer until the company was closed in 2014.
In March of 2016, Cindy purchased the Jewelry Department at Home Consignment Center in Las Vegas. Cindy stayed with Home Consignment until they closed the doors in October of 2017.
Cindy then contacted Colleen Aiken from Colleen’s Classic Consignment, who graciously offered Cindy a beautiful space for her Jewelry Department at her Fort Apache and Tropicana location.
Cindy looks forward to meeting all of Colleen’s customers as well as building a Jewelry Consignment Business, conducted with honestly and integrity. At Colleen’s Classic Consignment, Cindy will offer all the services of a fine Consignment Jewelry Department including Consignment, Sales, Layaways, Appraisals, Jewelry Design, and Repairs.
