Magician David Blaine, known for his feats of endurance, will also make an appearance.

JCK Editor-in-Chief Victoria Gomelsky will announce the winner of the first annual Diamonds Do Good Jewelry Awards during one of the interlude segments.

Diamonds Do Good, in partnership with JCK, announced the awards in February, which will be given to members of the jewelry industry who’ve incorporated charitable giving into their business.

The event, held July 30 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. EDT, will be the first in a series of virtual gatherings held by the nonprofit.

It is free to attend, but donations are welcome, said Diamonds Do Good.

Registration will be open soon via the organization’s website on the “About Us/Virtual Global Gathering” page.

Formerly known as the Diamond Empowerment Fund, the organization changed its name last year as part of its rebranding.
