HONG KONG.- An online auction of three stunning pieces of jewelry, created by Chinese haute joaillerie artist Anna Hu, took place from July 3 -13, totalling HK$2,612,500/US$338,781 and attracting over 5,000 online visitors. All of the proceeds will benefit families of healthcare workers who lose their lives in the battle against COVID-19. Ms. Hu donated the original sketches outlining her inspiration behind these three pieces to the buyers.
Diamonds That Care, the social responsibility initiative of ALROSA, the world’s largest diamond miner by volume, initiated this charity auction and invited Anna Hu to create the set, with the aim of inspiring beautiful creations which help people in need. The company provided more than 500 colorless and fancy colored brown-toned polished diamonds, including a fancy brown-yellow 27-carat stone, to give life to Hu’s three inspirational designs.
Diamonds That Care will transfer the proceeds from the auction to the Brave of Heart Fund via the global nonprofit organization Diamonds Do Good. The funds will support the Brave of Heart Fund, which was founded to provide financial and emotional support to the families of frontline healthcare workers and volunteers who lose their lives in the COVID-19 fight.
