TOTAL VALUE: $13, 130

Lobortas Classic Jewellery House based in Ukraine, is renowned for its exceptional craftsmanship, and unparalleled artistry and has been featured in prestigious museums worldwide. Their clientele includes notable figures such as Pope Francis, Donald Trump, the Dalai Lama, and even the Royal Family.

This donation lot pays tribute to the remarkable legacy of Igor Lobortas, the visionary founder of Lobortas Jewelry House in Ukraine. Despite being based in Ukraine, Lobortas Jewelry House has forged a strong and meaningful relationship with Canada, thanks to Igor’s profound impact on our community.

While Igor and his company are renowned for their exquisite craftsmanship and luxurious creations, their true significance lies in their unwavering commitment to charity and giving back. Igor’s journey with Canada began when Mandi Quiring, who is a member of the ONE LIFE Gala committee, reached out for support for a charity auction. To everyone’s surprise and delight, Igor responded with open arms, generously donating a breathtaking jewelry pendant that captured the hearts of many, raising over $46,000 for the cause.

But Igor’s generosity didn’t stop there. Despite battling cancer himself, he personally delivered more jewelry pieces, forging a bond that transcended borders and touched our souls. Together with Mandi, they embarked on numerous charitable endeavors, spreading kindness, charity, and beauty wherever they went. In their friendship, they discovered that true luxury lies not in material possessions, but in the act of giving.

In April of 2023, Igor tragically passed away, leaving behind a profound legacy of compassion and goodwill. In honor of Igor Lobortas and his esteemed company, Lobortas Jewelry House, has donated two incredible items for auction, each representing the essence of Lobortas’ artistry and generosity.

The first item is the exquisite “Yin and Yang” pendant, meticulously crafted from precious enamels, noble gold, and adorned with dazzling diamonds. This masterpiece symbolizes the interplay of opposites and unity, embodying the endless, beautiful harmony of life.

The second item is a custom design certificate worth $3,000, granting the fortunate winner the opportunity to collaborate with Lobortas’ skilled artisans in crafting a bespoke creation that reflects their individuality or represents their organization’s identity. Lobortas’ unparalleled artistry, featured in prestigious museums worldwide, has captivated renowned figures such as the Pope, the Dalai Lama, and even the Royal Family.

Let us remember that charity and kindness have the power to change the world in profound ways, even if we may not witness their direct impact. The Lobortas Jewelry House, in deep gratitude for the kindness extended by Canadians, seeks to honor Igor’s journey and his deep connection with our country throughout the past year.

By joining forces and bidding generously on these remarkable offerings, we can continue Igor’s mission of spreading kindness and making a lasting impact. Let us not only celebrate the remarkable craftsmanship of Lobortas Jewelry House but also carry forward the mission of Mandi and Lobortas, reminding ourselves that true luxury lies in the selfless act of giving and knows no borders.
