It will raise funds for Hurricane Harvey relief.

(Press Release) DALLAS, TX – Fine jewelry influencers and industry professionals Grace Lavarro of Jewels By Grace and Benjamin Guttery of @ThirdCoastGems have partnered to curate a charitable jewelry and art auction, “Jewelers for Texans,” with the goal of raising funds to the plight of the people affected by Hurricane Harvey in Houston and surrounding areas.

The public online auction is housed on the website CharityBuzz.com, closing Oct. 17. A collective of designers, retailers, influencers, manufacturers and artists donated their work to help raise funds for the cause. The auction features an assortment of designs from one-of-a-kind, vintage and antique pieces to loose diamonds and custom-cut gemstones.

“This tight-knit community has banded together with a common desire to help the people of Houston and its surrounding areas because collectively, we realized that standing by is not, and cannot be, the only option.  We are an industry surrounded by beautiful and precious things – but none more precious than being able to share those with those in need,” says jeweler Grace Lavarro.

All proceeds will go to support the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, a Houston organization that was endorsed by Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner as well as the New York Times, with the current mission to provide immediate help to all those whose lives have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

“As a Texas native, the devastation from Hurricane Harvey is an incredibly personal cause to me,” says jewelry industry consultant and influencer Benjamin Guttery. “We invite people to bid generously on all the beautiful jewelry and art work we have curated for this auction, and to remember that each time you look at the beautiful jewelry you purchase via this auction, you are playing an instrumental role in helping Texans in their time of great need.”

Lavarro says, “It’s not just jewelry – it’s also hope and a message to our fellow Americans: They are not alone.”

Wilkerson Paves the Way for the Future

After serving the San Antonio, Texas community for decades, C. Aaron Peñaloza Jewelers closed its doors earlier this year. Aaron and Mary Peñaloza, the store’s owners, chose Wilkerson to handle their retirement sale. “In the first six days, we did six months’ worth of business,” says Aaron. “In the first three weeks, we did a year’s worth of business.” Mary Peñaloza says Wilkerson’s ability to tailor the sale to their store’s requirements really made it all so much easier. “They are professionals,” she says. “They know what they’re doing. They have a plan, but they will listen to you and adjust that plan to your needs.”
