Indian jewellery house Amrapali will unveil a new collection of unique couture jewels at an exclusive, by-invitation-only silent auction in New York tomorrow - the first time the one-of-a-kind pieces have been showcased and available for sale in the United States.

Taking place at the legendary Plaza Hotel, the auction will benefit Future Brilliance, with a portion of the proceeds going to the charity, which supports the fledging jewellery industry in Afghanistan.

As well as enjoying The Plaza's signature cocktails, canapés and Fairmont Vintage wines, guests will be treated to an exhibition of photographs featuring Amrapali jewels. The striking images were all shot in Fairmont hotels and resorts around India, the most recent of which, taken at Fairmont Jaipur, appears in the luxury hotel group's magazine.

"We are honoured to exhibit our exclusive new collection at the Plaza Hotel for this noble cause and we look forward to extending our support for such endeavours in the future," says Tarang Arora, Worldwide CEO of Amrapali.

Amrapali first pledged its support to Future Brilliance last year and is continually looking for ways to support the charity's mission to develop the skills of Afghan artisans and create a profitable industry for the war-torn country.

"It is with great pride that Amrapali debuts its one-of-a-kind fine jewellery at the iconic Plaza Hotel in New York as we continue our support of and collaboration with Future Brilliance and the empowerment of women everywhere," says Amrapali's US CEO Abhi Kothari. 

Editor's Pick

The Jewellery Editor is for sale

Help us make the future bright

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow in the hands of a different owner. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform.

We can’t commit to financing the website for much longer so if we don’t manage to initiate any meaningful conversations in the next few weeks, the website will be frozen on 1st April 2018. If and when we find a suitable partner we will revive it and take it to the next stage.

If you are interested to discuss the above, please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you are willing to help, you can donate so that in the meantime, we can continue to publish more interesting content.
