Backes & Strauss donated a limited edition timepiece from its Regent Diamond Jubilee Collection – created to celebrate the reign of Queen Elizabeth ll – to be included in the auction, which was a highlight of the event.
Having gained permission from the Lord Chamberlain’s Office in Buckingham Palace to use Her Majesty’s Royal Cypher in the design of this unique and historical watch collection, each piece has a serial number from the 60-year reign of the Queen, crafted in 18 carat white gold and hand set with ideal cut round brilliant diamonds.
“We are very proud to have been part of this important and successful fundraising event that will help so many children,” said Backes & Strauss group CEO Vartkess Knadjian.
The Chain of Hope Charity has been saving lives for 18 years, providing children suffering from life-threatening heart disease with the corrective surgery and treatment they need, but do not have access to.
The charity sends out medical teams to treat children in their own country as well as bringing children to the UK for open and closed heart operations, and setting up training programmes for local surgeons and medical staff.
