Diamond auction fights domestic abuse

If you’re still looking for that perfect holiday gift, now is your chance to buy some stunning diamond jewellery while supporting the Kelowna Women’s Shelter.

Premier Jewellery and Loans and KelownaNow are hosting a diamond auction this month with 100% of the proceeds going to the shelter. Up for grabs is a pair of 1.4 carat, white gold diamond earrings appraised at $8600.

“Within our work and personal lives, we’ve met women trapped in the chains of physical, emotional or financial abuse,” said Martin Strasser of Premier Jewellery and Loans.

“Our pawn lending and jewellery buying service has helped many women, but we wanted to tackle this issue on a larger scale. The shelter is a good fit because it addresses many needs at once.”

The generous community support will greatly benefit the shelter. Money raised will help provide food, clothing, counselling support and preventive education for women and their children who have experienced abuse.

The auction closes at noon on Monday, December 21st. You are welcome to visit Premier Jewellery and Loans to look at the earrings before bidding– the store is located at #4-1980 Bredin Rd. in Kelowna.

So join the fight against domestic abuse and find a beautiful present in the process (even if you keep it for yourself!).
