A few years ago I was talking to my sister-in-law about how hard it was to photograph coloured diamonds. She straight away put me in contact with Kallam and that was the start of a great partnership. Kallam photographed hundreds of loose diamonds and diamond jewellery for us and I know he spent hours and hours getting the images just right. This all came to abrupt end in January this year when Kallam was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer – a brain tumour.
This diagnosis was life changing and it meant that both he and his wife Mercedes had to immediately stop working to concentrate on the fight ahead. Kallam just finished his fourth round of Chemo which he has taken well and both he and Mercedes are staying positive.
We wanted to do something to help their family in their fight so we have decided to hold a raffle with the main prize being a 0.50 ct Argyle Origin Champagne Diamond valued at $1,250.00. Tickets will be on sale at our Pink Diamond Information Evening on the 7 September.
