Lazare Kaplan International Inc. will celebrate its 110th anniversary this year by making charitable donations to multiple industry organizations. Lazare Kaplan will kick off its “Hearts for Hope” charitable donation campaign during the Luxury/JCK shows, May 28 to June 3, in Las Vegas. A custom-made heart pendant, featuring a Lazare Diamond laser-inscribed with “Hearts for Hope,” was designed specifically for this charitable donation campaign.
every pendant sold during the show, a donation of $110 will be given to
both Jewelers for Children (JFC) and The Lazare Ongoma Initiative
Lazare Kaplan created LOI in 2012 to raise awareness for
a number of important causes in Africa, one of which is to improve and
enhance every child’s educational experience in Namibia – one of the
world’s largest gem diamond producing nations. Ongoma, meaning “drum” in
an African language, is an instrument that is created to make sound and
Lazare Kaplan designed the initiative to ''make noise'' about the LOI
In addition, Lazare Kaplan will continue to donate to the
LOI, which is tied with The Lazare Diamond Incentive program whereby
each sales associate’s reward will be matched as a donation to the Five
Rand Primary School in Okahandja, Namibia.
