Jeweler Joins with AIDS Charity to Create Bracelet for World AIDS Day
LONDON - Tateossian and Terrence Higgins Trust have joined forces to create a special limited edition bracelet celebrating the charity’s 30th anniversary.
Launching exclusively on the 1st December in honour of World AIDS Days, the sodalite beaded unisex bracelet features a stylish ID tag complete with the signature THT heart logo in modish grey enamel.
"I am thrilled to be working with Terrence Higgins Trust again to raise money for such an important cause. I have been an active supporter of Terrence Higgins Trust for many years. To raise awareness for this cause is key," says CEO Robert Tateossian.
Tateossian jewelry is a luxury-handcrafted product with a unique design ethos. The seasonal collections for both men and women have a distinctive signature, constantly reflecting and reinterpreting trends in fashion.
Designs are contemporary, fashion-forward and timeless attracting a huge fan base including some of the world’s most high profile figures such as David Furnish, Eva Herzigova, Naomi Campbell, Tracey Emin, Neve Campbell, Natasha Bedingfield, David Gandy, Jenson Button and Sophie Dahl.
THT was one of the first charities to be set up in response to the HIV epidemic and has been at the forefront of the fight against HIV, and improving the nation’s sexual health, ever since.
When Terry Higgins died with AIDS, on 4 July 1982, his friends and partner took the love they had for him and decided to make a change. They founded Terrence Higgins Trust in Terry’s name, so that others wouldn’t have to suffer the way he had suffered. From just a handful of people in a flat in east London, the charity has grown to become the UK’s leading voice on HIV and sexual health.
Terrence Higgins Trust have staffed phone lines, stuck up posters and visited schools. They have launched clinics and counselling services, youth groups and websites and have held the Government to account. For a time people were helped to die with dignity, and for the last 15 years people living with HIV have been helped to live their lives to the fullest.
