RAPAPORT... 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 campaigndiamond pendant.

For every pendant sold during the show, a donation of $110 will be given to both Jewelers for Children (JFC) and The Lazare Ongoma Initiative (LOI).

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 Swahili, is an instrument that is created to make sound and Lazare Kaplan designed the initiative to ''make noise'' about the LOI mission.

In addition, Lazare Kaplan will continue to donate to the LOI, which is tied with The Lazare Diamond Incentive program in that  each sales associate’s reward will be matched as a donation to the Five Rand Primary School in Okahandja, Namibia.
