Diamond earrings will be raffled off to benefit the RCI-IIBEC Foundation Student Participation Fund.

This year, as part of the Foundations’ Auction, there will be a very special drawing to benefit the IIBEC Convention/Student Participation Fund. For a gift of $100 or more, the first 100 donors will receive a 1-in-100 chance to win a $3,000 pair of diamond earrings. These earrings are of 1.72 (0.85 + 0.87) total carat weight, with round brilliant diamonds in faceted girdle edges in a 14k white gold, champagne-style setting with double click rings. The pair comes with a certificate of authenticity and was mined in Brazil.

The goal of this drawing is to generate at least $10,000 for student attendance and participation in future IIBEC International Convention and Trade Shows.

For your chance, make a donation to the Student Convention Fund between now and the night of the Foundations’ Auction (March 29). You will be randomly assigned a number. During the live auction, a number will be pulled, and the person with that number wins the earrings! You need not be present to win. Donations can be made online at

Chances, if still available, can be purchased at the Foundations’ Auction until the time of the drawing.
