“Jewelers for Texans” Launches Fine Jewelry Charity Auction

Fine jewelry influencers and industry professionals, Grace Lavarro of Jewels By Grace and Benjamin Guttery of @ThirdCoastGems have partnered together to curate a charitable jewelry and art auction, “Jewelers for Texans”, to raise funds to help the people of Houston and its surrounding areas, impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

The public online auction is housed on the website, CharityBuzz.com, closing October 17. A collective of designers, retailers, influencers, manufacturers, and artists have 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, an 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 local Houston organization which 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,” states 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 expressed, “It's not just jewelry - it's also hope and a message to our fellow Americans: They are not alone.”
