The Canadian jewellery designer Kat Florence personally scouts for rare jewels and provides them with her very personal note. Exquisite colored gemstones, such as sapphires, emeralds or Paraiba tourmalines, build the center of her jewellery pieces. Such gems are true rarities nowadays and very hard to find in the market. In 2015, Kat Florence inked a 5-year partnership with Sarah Jessica Parker.

The Gübelin Gem Lab supports the charity auction by analyzing selected pieces from the collection at no charge. Since 1923, the family-owned company Gübelin runs its own, independent gemmological laboratory. Under the aegis of the late Dr. Eduard J. Gübelin, the Gübelin Gem Lab evolved to a globally respected gem testing lab, operating permanent facilities in Lucerne, Hong Kong and New York.
The two most astonishing lots consist of two diamonds necklaces featuring truly outstanding centre stones, a 423 ct Tanzanite and a 91 ct Paraiba tourmaline from Mozambique. For the buyers of these two lots, the Gübelin Academy will offer a complementary «Coloured Gem Professional» Level 1 course in Hong Kong (http://www.gubelin.com/en/gemmology/academy).

The Gübelin Academy was founded in Hong Kong in 2013 and offers a fascinating introduction into the world of coloured gemstones. Focusing on the practical and emotional, the fast-track, modular courses aim to impart the necessary knowledge and passion to understand and appreciate colored gems with an informative and inspiring approach. Due to its continuing success, the Gübelin Academy now offers courses in Zurich, Switzerland as well.
