“Variety – The Children’s Charity” recently was the beneficiary of an auction featuring a set of blue pearl jewelry created in conjunction with Eyris Blue Pearl Co., Christchurch, New Zealand. Designed by artist and goldsmith Jacek Pawlowski, the pendant featured a stylized heart of 18k white and yellow gold surrounding a gem-quality Green Blue Bright Eyris Pearl. The matching earrings feature a pair of gem-quality Eyris pearls set in 18k yellow gold.
The jewelry was auctioned off May 5 at a gala event called “Gastrocomique,” an annual celebration of New Zealand’s award-winning comedians, chefs, and wines presented by TV2 International Laugh Festival and Heritage Auckland. Proceeds will enable “Variety – The Children’s Charity” to continue to support children’s literacy programs in New Zealand.
