The shortlist for this year’s UK Jewellery Awards got announced, congratulations to all finalists.
Gorgeous and Glamorous. Dashing and Debonair. At Hollywood’s most glittering and anticipated evening of the year, the Academy Awards®, there was an extra sparkle on the red carpet tonight. As celebrities showed off their couture outfits, sleek hairstyles and dazzling fashionable accessories, two particular items of jewelry attracted special attention.
The bespoke Sabine Roemer 46664 Bangle worn by Morgan Freeman and Lori McCreary caught the eye of many on the red carpet tonight because of their greater significance and meaningful positive impact. The bracelets are beautiful bling, but as they are engraved with Nelson Mandela’s prisoner number 46664, they also represent his humanitarian causes and the noble qualities for which he is adored around the world. The bracelets will be auctioned at a later date to raise money for the Nelson Mandela Foundation.
Aside from the custom-made bracelets made specially for Morgan Freeman and Lori McCreary, the 46664 Bangles are available in platinum, gold, silver and copper. The bracelets are a powerful symbol of hope – creating employment where it’s so badly needed and supporting the 46664 Campaign of the Nelson Mandela Foundation in the ongoing fight against HIV AIDS.
Anyone can be a superstar and support the 46664 Bangle project by buying their own 46664 Bangle here – all the bracelets bear a digital imprint of Nelson Mandela’s hand, and are being referred to as the “South African Bracelet for Hope”.
Tanzanite celebration of life jewelry design awards 2006
A prestigious ceremony took place at the New York Public Library on January 22nd, 2007 to honour and celebrate the winning collection. This final collection was showcased at the Awards presentation before embarking on a travelling tour of the major international trade shows, renowed galleries and museums. On behalf of the Tanzanite Foundation we would like to congratulate Sabine Roemer, the talented Rising Star who is currently the only women in the UK building a career designing and handcrafting bespoke jewellery.
Sabine Roemer’s ring was inspired by the vivid blooms of a blue-violet wreath flower which, like tanzanite, is unique to the country of Tanzania.
Sabine wanted to combine these two gifts of nature into a piece that is both organic and refined.
