Satchmo Diamond

 

All for the German Children´s Cancer Support Organisation: Isabell Werth, Riders Tour and Semper Fides joined forces and did sell the ‘Satchmo-Diamond’ by auction.

The “Satchmo-Diamond”, a diamond of 0,5 carat, was created from the elements of the coat of our double world champion. Combined with carbon and under the pressure of approx. 55’000 bar and at a temperature of approx. 1’500 °C, this wonderful, distinctive and nature-identical diamond grew at the Semper Fides Diamonds manufactory.

Why the “Satchmo-Diamond” for the German Children´s Cancer Support Organisation?

At the tournament at Brelingen (Wedemark) on 01.09.2006 Thomas Peter (Managing Director of Semper Fides Diamonds GmbH) presented Kerstin Becker the company “Semper Fides Diamonds GmbH”. During the conversation the idea of a “Charity-Diamond” in favour of the German Children´s Cancer Support Organisation was born. The idea arose because Kerstin Becker’s 30 year old sister-in-law died of cancer and bequeathed her pet ‘Zampl’. Kerstin Becker wanted to take up the positive energy of her sister-in-law

 

and do a good deed in order to support people in their fight against cancer. Kerstin Becker and Thomas Peter immediately agreed: we will do something! What was more self-evident than “Satchmo”! Monday after the tournament Kerstin Becker got in touch with Mrs. Winter-Schulze agreed at one and talked to Isabell Werth. So it was brought into being: the “Satchmo-Diamond”! From this moment on Isabell Werth gathered all hair of Satchmo and put her and Satchmo into service for a good thing.
