Reef Jewelry and The Shark Trust's 10th Anniversary Auction
29 October Monday, 3:30 PM

Reef Jewelry creates “The Mermaids Purse Ensemble”, featuring diamonds by De Beers, for The Shark Trust's 10th Anniversary Auction 

       When The Shark Trust ( received a generous donation of 22 diamonds from the Diamond Authority, De Beers, to commemorate the charity's 10th Anniversary, they commissioned diving jewellery experts, Reef Jewelry ( to create something rather special. 

      “As divers, shark welfare is close to our heart”, stated Peter Barbarovich, Reef Jewelry's Designer, “so we were touched and honoured that The Shark Trust contacted us to discuss a unique commission of shark jewellery that will help raise funds for their valuable work. With the extinction clock minutes from midnight and ticking for many shark species, we wanted to design a heritage piece that would represent the fragile existence of our shark population. The resulting 18-carat yellow gold Mermaids Purse pendant seemed fitting for the occasion. Suspended from a bespoke handmade necklace, intricately set with the De Beer Diamonds, the Purse is bejewelled with Diamonds and Ruby's, which symbolise the precious life inside the egg case. The set is completed by a pair of hand crafted 18-carat yellow gold Earrings, each set with a solitaire diamond and ruby.   

      Ten years after the launch of The Shark Trust, and the need to educate the World about these magnificent creatures is as pressing as it was a decade ago. I hope therefore that when 'The Mermaids Purse Ensemble' is auctioned off at The Shark Trust's Gala Ball on Saturday 17th November at the Crown Moran Hotel, Cricklewood, it will help raise significant funds.  If you would like to be there tickets are still available for this from Glenys Heafield, on 01752 – 672 008”.
