View these dazzling pieces at Christie's Hong Kong, 22/F Alexandra House, Central from 4-7 July.
An online charity auction of three stunning pieces of jewellery, created by Anna Hu, will take place from July 3 -13 with proceeds going to support the families of healthcare workers who lost their lives while fighting tirelessly against COVID-19. The sale highlights the bravery of all healthcare heroes who continue to help on the frontline.
The pieces will be sold by Diamonds That Care, the social responsibility initiative of Alrosa, the world’s largest diamond mining company. The initiative’s main idea is that every diamond should help those in need.
Ms. Hu created these unique pieces exclusively for the Diamonds that Care charity project, using rich brown diamonds extracted by Alrosa in Yakutia, a region in the Siberian Far East. More than 500 colourless and fancy coloured polished diamonds were used in this jewellery set, including a 27.02 carat pear-shaped diamond of a warm peachy colour.
Inspired by the heartfelt generosity that has united the world, each jewellery piece features a dazzling heart emblem as a symbol of love and care.
The project is organized in cooperation with the non-profit charitable organisation Diamonds Do Good.
