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.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
