Cornish jeweller auctions off bespoke rainbow ring for the NHS

Cornish jeweller auctions off bespoke rainbow ring for the NHS

Published by Helen Down at 12:10pm 11th July 2020. (Updated at 12:20pm 11th July 2020)

Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (CFT) launched the auction on July 25, the 72nd birthday of the NHS.

The jeweller from the Duchy that designed and donated the ring doesn't want to be named.

“I wanted to give something back to the NHS. Seeing how the rainbow was becoming a symbol for the NHS I thought it would be nice to make a ring in the same theme,

“I’ve never made anything for charity before, but I was thinking about how I could help locally and wanted to support the efforts of Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.”

Rainbow ring

“It’s an honour to receive this ring from such an esteemed jeweller.

"I’ve never seen anything like it before and it is sure to be a talking point. We can’t thank the generous donor enough for auctioning the ring to raise money for our COVID-19 Appeal.”

Stephanie Pomeroy, Fundraising Manger

You can make a bid on the ring before 9pm on Sunday 12 July.
