Scottish retailer auctions diamond-set pendant for £1,050.
Chisholm Hunter has raised more than £1,000 for a spinal charity through the auction of a diamond-set Art Deco inspired pendant.
The retailer, owned by Professional Jeweller Hot 100 Retail Stars Harry and Tracey Brown, auctioned the necklace at the recent Digby Brown Winter Dinner Dance, in aid of Spinal Injuries Scotland.
Chisholm Hunter gifted an 18ct white gold Art Deco flower pendant to the auction, as well as cheque to support the charity, which is a voluntary organisation dedicated to supporting people with recent or long term spinal cord injuries.
Tracey Brown, director of Chisholm Hunter, said: “Spinal Injuries Scotland is a tremendous charity and we are delighted to lend our support to them. It was an amazing evening and it was great to hear about the good work Spinal Injuries Scotland does to support people with spinal injuries and their families.”
Almost 500 people attended the event, which raised £5,388, with bids for the Chisholm Hunter pendant reaching £1,050.
A spokesperson from Spinal Injuries Scotland said: “The winter dinner dance is one of our major fundraising events of the year so is very important to us as a charity.
“A large portion of the money raised on the night is due to the auction and therefore we were absolutely delighted to receive such a fabulous donation as the stunning diamond pendant from Chisholm Hunter. It certainly proved to be a very popular item and raised a great amount of money for the charity.”
