Sidney Garber, a prominent Chicago-based fine jeweler, died Sept. 20 at his daughter’s home in Wainscott, N.Y.
He was 89.
“He was a fanatic for quality and for value,” said his daughter, Brooke Garber Neidich. She noted that her father was ahead of the competition by bringing products from Europe to the store as far back as 1970. “He continued to work until May 2007,” she said.
Sidney Garber Jewelers Inc. is located at 118 East Delaware Place in Chicago. It remains family-owned and run by Neidich and her friend Jennifer Aubrey.
The son of a watchmaker, Garber opened the store in 1946 and established a reputation for design and craftsmanship. Born in Chicago in 1919, Garber attended the University of Illinoisand was a decorated veteran of World War II.
In addition to his daughter, Garber is survived by his wife, Deanna Berman Garber; son Blair; sister Esther Port, and three grandchildren.
A memorial service will be held at Chicago Sinai Congregation at 15 West Delaware Place at 11 a.m. on Monday. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the NYU Child Study Center Open Door Fund.
Etro’s show, titled “The Tree of Life,” was a celebration of the house’s 50th anniversary. “My father founded the company in 1968, which was the year of counterculture and psychedelia. It’s really a show that celebrates that and the paisley design of India and its origin,” said Veronica Etro. #wwdfashion #mfw #ss18 (📷: @delphineachard)
