Anna Hu creates jewellery for ‘Diamonds That Care’ to fight COVID-19

An online auction of three pieces of jewellery, created by Anna Hu, will take place from July 3 -13. The proceeds will go to support healthcare workers fighting against the pandemic.

The pieces will be sold by Diamonds That Care, the newly launched 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 pieces exclusively for this charity project using rich brown diamonds extracted by Alrosa in Yakutia, Siberia, Russia.

Proceeds from the sale will assist healthcare workers who continue to work at the center of efforts to combat the pandemic. The project is organised in cooperation with the non-profit charitable organisation Diamonds Do Good.

“Many people are in distress, and no one can remain indifferent to this pandemic. The world needs positivity, empathy, a sense of support, care and love. I hope to express all these feelings in my three pieces of jewellery,” Anna Hu commented. 

The three pieces for auction:

Firstly, there is a necklace with fancy colour and colourless diamonds, centering a Fancy Brown-Yellow diamond weighing 27.02 carats. It is manufactured with 18 k white gold and 18 k red gold.

Then, a 18k red gold ring with fancy colour diamonds and colourless diamonds, centering a Faint Brown diamond weighing 1.59 carats.

Finally, a pair of earrings made of 18k white gold and 18k red gold, with fancy colour and colourless diamonds, each earring centering a pear shape 3 carats diamond.

Board President of Diamonds Do Good, Anna Martin commented: “We are honoured to be associated with this project which will spread positivity and hope and show that diamonds truly do good.” 

Christie’s Online Auction will run from 3 to 13 July 2020.
