Pink Ribbon Polo Cup

Charlottesville, VA

Fink’s Jewelers participates in many Pink Ribbon events throughout the year. Each employee involved volunteers their personal time and energy to make event a success. One such event is the Pink Ribbon Polo Cup ....

Over the past four years the Pink Ribbon Polo Cup has become a highly anticipated event in Charlottesville. This year’s event was held on June 14 at the King Family Vineyards in Crozet with Team Eagle versus Team Embarq in the main event. Proceeds from this event are divided equally between Martha Jefferson Hospital and the University of Virginia Health System Cancer Center for the fight against breast cancer. Organized by the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation the event is more than just a polo match.

Festivities began mid-morning with a tour by the Stage Junction Clydesdales; live music was provided by the Duke Merrick Band and a wine tasting was held by the Vineyards. The majority of attendees brought picnic lunches and set up either under the pink umbrellas or field side waiting anxiously for the traditional divot stomp. Karen Sherwin and Dianne Bain from Fink’s Jeweler’s Barracks Road location participated, coordinating a beautiful Roberto Coin Cheval Collection bracelet donation for the raffle. With breast cancer prevention, awareness and research being near and dear to the Fink’s family, we’re ecstatic to participate in such wonderful and worthwhile events.

Art + Jewelry = Favero

It’s one thing to admire beauty, but quite different to create it. This is why fashion and jewelry go hand in hand. And no one knows fashion more intrinsically than Mariano Favero. He founded Favero in 1973 in the northeastern part of Italy, a region famous for the working of gold throughout the centuries. Sometimes referred to as Italy’s best-kept jewelry secret, this brand is making inroads in Hollywood where Barbra Streisand, among others, has been spotted wearing the jewelry, not to mention Catherine Zeta-Jones’ wedding band was a Favero design. It’s no surprise that Favero finds itself completely at home in the fashion capital of the world.

Favero is one of the newest brands to Fink’s but has had tremendously positive introduction. Mariano Favero’s craftsmanship and vibrancy exploits itself by using beautiful gemstones and quality diamonds that are uniquely brilliant. Each piece can be worn as a statement piece or in understated elegance.

A lady that enjoys and has an appreciation for elegance and beauty will be attracted to Favero jewelry. When she wants a bold look, color matters and Favero does not shy away from it at all! This jewelry line allows any lady to steal the show and seize the day!

Even if you have a limited wardrobe in color or feel like you wear too much black and white like me, Favero will be the splash of color that awakens you classic attire. However, if you are already sparkling with a colorful wardrobe, add complementary pieces to complete your look with a fun flare from Favero. From classic style to trendy chic, Favero fits a need and desire. After all, Mariano Favero made attention to detail an intricate part of his world-class jewelry design.

Whatever the occasion, try Favero! Favero is more that jewelry, it’s breathtaking art.
