‘The Pink Ring’ Auctioned for Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Nelson jeweller Benjamin Clark of Benjamin Black Goldsmiths is auctioning a uniquely crafted ring to raise funds for the Nelson Regional Breast Cancer Trust in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October 2013.
The Pink Ring is valued at a retail price of $1290- and is made with 9 carat white gold, set with a faceted pink tourmaline stone, with the design reflecting the shape of the Breast Cancer Trust’s logo.
Mr Clark says this is the second time he has created a ring in support of the cause.
“Most of us know someone who has been affected by breast cancer, so raising money for the Nelson Regional Breast Cancer Trust, who do such a vital job in helping patients and their families throughout the top of the South Island, is important to me,” says Clark.
“The Pink Ring differs from last year’s design because it is made with white gold (rather than silver) and it resembles the trust’s emblem, but it is the same in that it is a one-off design.”
Kate Coote, Spokeswoman for Nelson Regional Breast Cancer Trust, says she is delighted to have Benjamin’s support.
“Benjamin is a talented jeweller, the ring he made last year was a big hit and we are thrilled he has decided to help raise funds for the trust,” says Coote.
“The ring is very special - not only is it absolutely beautiful, made to the high standard of workmanship and design he is known for, but he has also managed to capture it’s significance completely.”
The Pink Ring is currently being auctioned on Trade Me until October 13 starting at a one dollar reserve. The highest bidder shall win the ring with all proceeds donated to the Nelson Regional Breast Cancer Trust.
For those people who wish to view The Pink Ring, it is currently on display at Benjamin Black Goldsmiths, 176 Bridge Street, Nelson.
