Submitted by: Last Word Communications
(OPENPRESS) December 22, 2011 -- In the spirit of giving back this holiday season, New York City-based Greenwich Jewelers is announcing the launch of a special holiday program intended to make many wishes come true. Three awe-inspiring pieces of jewelry will be on display throughout the holiday season, with a substantial portion of the sell price going to the qualifying charity of the buyer's choice.
"We were inspired by each of the pieces of jewelry in our 3 Wishes campaign," explains Jennifer Gandia, Co-Owner of Greenwich Jewelers. "Receiving any of these extraordinary pieces as a gift would make anyone's dream come true, and so we thought it was a great opportunity to make some dreams come true for worthwhile, charitable organizations that are close to our customer's hearts."
The rarity of award-winning American designer Todd Reed's 36 carat diamond necklace cannot be over-stated. Inspired by the concept of the grand necklace as created by the finest jewelry houses and ceremonial breastplates used in ancient Mayan rituals, the artist has created a truly exceptional piece of wearable art. The diamonds originate from the Canadian Diavik mine and are near colorless diamond crystals, plucked from the earth, sawn in half, then set into the 18k gold and sterling silver necklace in their nearly perfect, natural state. The suite of diamond crystals is so rare the designer says that creating the necklace was a "once in a lifetime opportunity." The fusion of design, rarity and wearability in this one-of-a-kind jewel is a perfect match for the ultimate jewelry collector. Priced at $190,000, a full $10,000 will be donated to charity.
Gurhan, jeweler to A-list stars like Angelina Jolie, Sandra Bullock and Jennifer Lopez has created a decadent 24karat gold and rose cut sapphire necklace. Totaling 167 carats of midnight blue sapphires, the play on symmetry in this statement-making necklace gives this piece an unpredictable beauty. Each lustrous, pure gold frame was hand hammered by the artist, making this necklace the ultimate blend of ancient technique and modern design. Priced at $75,000, Greenwich Jewelers will be giving $7,500 to a charity of the buyer's choice.
Inspired by their favorite, cozy winter fabric, Greenwich Jewelers endeavored to create a cuff bracelet with an unexpected edge. Their Cashmere diamond bracelet was created with 27 carats of perfectly matched pale brown, black and near colorless diamonds set in 18k white gold mesh. As soft as real cashmere, this bracelet molds to the shape of the wrist, allowing for a truly unique fit in a piece of statement jewelry. The palette of diamond colors is at once extraordinary and neutral, giving this bracelet equal parts uptown elegance and downtown attitude. With a retail price of $50,000, some lucky charity stands to receive a gift of $5,000 when this item sells.
