Our Founder, Dr Rona Mackenzie, is also the Chief Operating Officer of David Fowkes Jewellery. David is generously supporting D3IT through the creation of a unique, handmade piece of jewellery for each of the seven climbs.
For this first adventure, David has chosen tanzanite, a gemstone only found in Tanzania. It has been hand-cut in Germany and flown to the UK where David has designed a stunning pendant.
The pendant will be hand manufactured by David’s Goldsmiths at their gallery in Thoresby Park, Nottinghamshire, and will accompany Rona on her climbing adventure. On its return to the UK, David has generously offered to donate a percentage of the sale of the tanzanite pendant to the charity.
