Barbie pays it forward!

In Cause on October 7, 2010 at 8:04 pm

Growing up, Barbie was every girl’s best friend. And here she is today with every woman’s best friend, helping to raise money to fight breast cancer – the most common cancer in women.

The most expensive Barbie created and designed by Australian designer Stefano Canturi, will be auctioned off at Christie’s auction house in New York on October 20, 2010. The necklace she is wearing features a real emerald, 1 carat cut diamond. This Barbie is supposed to fetch between $300,000 and $500,000. All proceeds will benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

The one-of-a-kind Barbie and her exquisite jewel is another way to raise money and create awareness.

Barbie nostalgia is helping a great cause. However, I cannot help but ask is the diamond she is wearing, a non conflict diamond?
