They’re valued at $30,000 in total.

(Press Release) Jewelry designer and artist Reena Ahluwalia has donated two original, museum-quality paintings to be auctioned at the Jewelers for Children Facets of Hope event in Las Vegas, NV. The paintings, “Portal of Empowerment” and “Radiate Brilliance,” show highly nuanced, hyper-realistic diamonds with ultra-magnified facets.

Ahluwalia is a multiple award-winning Canadian jewelry designer, diamond painter and educator. She is recognized as one of the top masters of jewelry design in Canada. She has won numerous national and international awards, including the coveted De Beers Diamonds International Award, Rio Tinto Diamonds Global Design Competition and the Tahitian Pearl Trophy.

“My paintings are very personal to me and each one is unique creation that has its own personality,” said Ahluwalia. “Knowing that the sale of them will benefit children who need the most help is truly gratifying for me.”

Both paintings will be on display during the event for potential bidders to view up close. “Portal of Empowerment” is valued at $20,000 on the collector’s market and “Radiate Brilliance” is valued at $10,000.

“Having a talent such as Reena provide these beautiful paintings to benefit Jewelers for Children is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity for the charity,” said David Rocha, executive director. “So many more children will be helped due to her generosity and huge heart.”

The Facets of Hope event will take place on Wednesday, June 7, in the South Seas Ballroom at Mandalay Bay Resort Casino. The paintings will be on display during the cocktail reception starting at 6 p.m. and during the dinner and program. Anyone interested in presenting a reserve bid before the event can contact JFC.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
