News-Antique.com - May 01,2007 - DALLAS, TEXAS: On May 21, 2007, Heritage Auction Galleries of Dallas, Texas will offer a spectacular Black Starr & Frost Journey Diamond Necklace, created in honor of Meryl Streep, to benefit the Academy Award-winning actress’s chosen charity, Equality Now.
“This incredibly special event, held in conjunction with our Spring Signature Auction of Fine Jewelry and Timepieces, is a wonderful opportunity both for Heritage and for Equality Now,” said Jill Burgum, Director of Jewelry Auctions for Heritage. “This magnificent necklace features graduated, round brilliant-cut diamonds weighing a total of 2.35 carats, set in platinum, and supported by an 18 karat yellow gold Omega style necklace. Signed Black, Starr & Frost, it has a retail value of $25,000, but we’re sure that the association with both Ms. Streep and Equality Now will raise its final value considerably. The diamonds have been sourced by Pluczenik, a DTC Sightholder, and certified through the Kimberly Process as well as under Source Veritas by the Gem Certification & Assurance Lab, Inc., as conflict free. I also think it’s important to note that Black, Starr & Frost, Source Veritas, and Heritage Auctions have fully donated all the services and materials for this event. Therefore, Equality Now will receive 100% of the necklace auction proceeds.”
Equality Now (www.equalitynow.org) is an international human rights organization dedicated to action for the civil, political, economic and social rights of girls and women.
