Haiti Auctions Start Feb. 1st!

Ring auctions start Monday, February 1, we now have 50 rings! Auctions will last 7 days, one or two rings will be listed each day, and they will continue on a rolling basis until all of the rings are sold. 100% of the proceeds will go to the GlobalGiving Relief Fund for Haiti Earthquake. Donation distribution is handled by MissionFish, a third-party, non-profit organization.

I will post the start and end date for each ring auction here on the blog, with a link to the eBay auction page. I will add more as I receive pictures from the artists. Here are some more rings.

Dauvit Alexander of Glasgow, Scotland has offered his amazing Frank Sinatra ring. Dauvit says,
"The nut on top was found in the road in a rather grim industrial estate in Burgess Hill. It is set with 21 yellow sapphires and spins. The ends are set with peridots and there is a garnet on the bottom. Why the name? Well, it is a 'dice' ring. The sapphires are arranged in groups of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 and it can be spun, the top face being the one which gives the number 'thrown'. When I came up with the idea - and all through manufacture - I could hear Frank in my head, singing 'Luck Be A Lady Tonight'." This ring has sold.

Janos Gabor Varga lives in Genova, Italy and generously gives his forged iron ring with 18 karat gold dots, which he made from a square iron tube. The auction for this ring has ended.
