In December 2016, Sybarite Jewellery sponsored an event for London-based charity Action for Children, hosted by Mayfair gallery owner, Elena Shchukina. By donating an exquisite pair of diamond earrings, we were able to support fundraising efforts to provide help at Christmas time and beyond to children and young people across the UK.

“We were humbled by the overwhelming response and are proud to say that thanks to our friends’ support, this year many more children will find presents under the Christmas tree. I am a proud member of Action for Children fundraising committee, and on 8th December, I was delighted to host a special event at the Gallery to promote their valuable work. Armed with festive decorations and with the help of our sponsor Sybarite Jewellery, we transformed the Gallery in a Winter Wonderland –adorned trees, fairy light, beautiful displays of sparkling jewellery, and a showcase of drawings about hope and peace by the children the charity works with.” Elena Shchukina

Guests were able to admire some of Sybarite’s most stunning pieces, specially curated for the event. Each piece played its part in a scene, framed in display cases that featured purpose-designed, origami-style settings in purest white, to highlight the shimmering colours and beauty of the jewellery itself.

It was a heartwarming and meaningful event. While guests sipped festive Champagne and admired both the glittering Sybarite jewellery and the paintings and drawings by the children themselves, we helped to make sure that many more children would wake on Christmas morning to discover a wonderful gift underneath the tree.
