(press release) NEW YORK – In a milestone marking Jewelers For Children’s 20 years of helping children in need, artist Reena Ahluwalia is donating an original diamond painting and some limited-edition prints to JFC. The 5-foot painting, The Portrait of Perfection, features a highly nuanced, hyper-realistic diamond with ultra-magnified facets. It took Ahluwalia 500 hours to complete. The painting will be auctioned at the JFC’s Facets of Hope event on June 3 in Las Vegas, NV.

“Reena has become such a big support of Jewelers for Children! Her paintings are so popular with our audiences and there is much anticipation about which of her amazing pieces will be available,” said David Rocha, executive director of JFC. “Her support has helped us reach our fundraising goals and meet our mission to help children in need.”

Ahluwalia’s artwork benefits Jewelers For Children along with other beneficiaries. Each year she support students by providing grants and scholarships and mentoring upcoming talent. She is an award-winning jewelry designer, a coveted diamond painter and a passionate professor.

Facets of Hope gala will take place on Sunday, June 3, at the Mandalay Bay Resort Hotel Casino in Las Vegas. Last year, 1,750 people attended the event. The painting will be on display during the cocktail reception starting at 6 p.m. Anyone interested in presenting a reserve bid before the event can contact JFC at 212-687-2949 or [email protected].

This year’s JFC honorees include Jeffrey Cohen from Citizen Watch America and Bill Luth from Signet Jewelers Ltd. Singer and songwriter Calum Scott will be performing at the gala, sponsored by Bulova. He was nominated for a Brit Award for Best Single, which has gone platinum in five countries.

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.”
