Cristie Kerr & Kwiat: Beauty, Brilliance & Benevolence

On an crisp Spring evening in midtown Manhattan, a small section of Madison Avenue sparkled.

Last night at 725 Madison Avenue, the flagship boutique of iconic New York jeweler Kwiat ... with its glass storefront and elegant platinum colored cove... hosted a glittering launch event for the amazing (translation: breathtakingly beautiful) jewelry collection born of the collaboration between the renowned jeweler and our country's number one woman golfer, Cristie Kerr.

The bustling event was held to introduce the Birdies for Breast Cancer Collection which features elegant diamond earrings and a matching pendant, all accented with pink sapphires and set in pink gold.

Having worked on a number of projects with Cristie, I know how dedicated she is to her charity, and how passionate she and her husband, Erik Stevens, are about New York... the city, its art and its culture.

Ten percent of every purchase of each item in the collection goes to Birdies for Breast Cancer where it will be put towards breast cancer research and awareness. The collection can be purchased at Kwiat galleries in New York City and Las Vegas.
