Flemington Jeweler Healing Hearts with “Circle of Life”: Roman Jewelers Designs Special Piece for Domestic Violence Victim Fundraiser (October 2, 2006 Flemington, NJ) For victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, it is a symbol of hope. For Sophie Shor of Roman Jewelers in Flemington, it is the desire to heal a heart and reach out to someone in need. Shor has designed a special piece of jewelry for Women’s Crisis Services of Hunterdon County. The ‘Diamond Circle of Life’ will be raffled off on November 3, 2006 at the agency’s Helping Hands Healing Hearts Gala at The Palace in Somerset.
Shor wanted the piece to have very special meaning. She explains, “It is a ‘Circle of Life’ made out of diamonds with a single tanzanite in the center. Tanzanite is the color of hope, which also is the color of Women’s Crisis Services. I wanted the piece to empower and invigorate the person wearing it, while also acting as a symbol of strength.”
The evening is a celebration of the dedication of staff and volunteers, who for more than 27 years, have supported, advocated for and served with compassion the victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.
Judy Dilts, Chairwoman of the Helping Hands Healing Hearts Gala says people do not realize the growing need for such services in the affluent Hunterdon County. “Last year alone, our center received 6,084 phone calls from women in need. At a time when the state is cutting back on such programs, it is so special to us that Sophie, and others like her, have recognized just how vital these services are.”
