For the evening’s live auction, Harry Winston donated a pair of its Open Belle Diamond Drop Earrings – set with 124 round brilliant diamonds – which were modeled by Angela Lindvall, raising $40,000 for AIDS research.

In addition, the night’s Award of Inspiration recipients, Charlize Theron and Jeffrey Katzenberg, were presented with the limited-edition Harry Winston Countdown to a Cure Timepiece, for their outstanding contributions to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS.

The Harry Winston Countdown to a Cure Timepiece is a limited-edition collection of 20 men’s and 20 women’s models, designed in honor of the second year of partnership between Harry Winston and amfAR. The Countdown to a Cure Timepiece is sold exclusively at Harry Winston salons worldwide, with 20% of the retail sales price from each limited-edition timepiece benefitting amfAR’s efforts to develop the scientific basis of a cure for HIV by 2020.
