Y’all know how much I love Red Carpet Jewelry with a purpose!
The Lustgarten Foundation, London Jewelers and David Yurman announced on July 15th the creation of a David Yurman signature pendant in support of the fight against pancreatic cancer, America’s fourth-leading cause of cancer deaths. The signature design was unveiled at a private reception at London Jewelers‘ Americana Manhasset location. Pendant creator and distinguished designer, David Yurman, made a special appearance.
The sterling silver and amethyst pendant, with signature David Yurman cable detail, on a 16″ box chain, retails for$295. The design will also be available in 18k gold, retailing at$1700. The pendant will be available in the Fall 2010 at all London Jewelers’ locations or can be ordered now by calling London Jewelers at 1-877-601-9924. Orders for the pendant will also be taken at The Lustgarten Foundation’s 10th annual Pancreatic Cancer Research Walk on Sunday, July 25th, at Nassau Community College in Garden City, New York. Net proceeds from the sale of the pendant will benefit The Lustgarten Foundation’s efforts in the fight against pancreatic cancer.
With an overall survival rate of just five percent, pancreatic cancer is a disease with no prevention, no early tests and, unless detected in its early stages, no cure.
Said Mark Udell, London Jewelers chief executive officer, “Having lost a beloved friend and valued member of the London Jewelers team, Michael Spevak, we understand all too well the devastating impact of pancreatic cancer. We are proud to team up with The Lustgarten Foundation in the fight against this disease, knowing that 100% of all donations to the Foundation go directly to pancreatic cancer research.”
