Coming Home necklace will raise funds for specially adapted housing.
Kasun London has created a special one-off Tahitian pearl pendant, which will be sold to raise money for specially adapted housing for injured service personnel and ex-servicemen and a women.
The Coming Home pendant has been made in 18ct gold, with a setting that wraps around a Tahitian pearl, with the setting decorated with 70 pave-set white diamonds. It is also hallmarked with the Diamond Jubilee hallmark.
The piece has been created as part of Kasun London’s Endless Beginnings collection, which focuses on the philosophy that “all stories must come to an end, but in life every end is a new beginning”.
It will be auctioned at a gala dinner for the Coming Home campaign in a week’s time, though bids for the necklace are already running online, starting at £500. The charity is working in partnership with the Haig Housing Trust, which was established in 2008 to provide individual housing solutions for members of the ex-service community in housing need, especially those with serious injury, disability or illness.
Kasun Ekanayake, founder of the brand, said: “We feel that the message behind the piece perfectly compliments the incredible work that Coming Home and the Haig Housing Trust are doing to raise money to provide housing for injured service and ex-Service personnel; helping to give them their own new beginning.”
The Coming Home dinner will be held at the Natural History Museum on November 1. The dinner will raise money to provide specially adapted housing to suit the needs of ex-service men and women to enable them to rebuild their lives.
