Further details
Lot 15, formerly known as the ‘Zale Light of Peace,’ was previously owned by the Zale Corporation of Dallas. Eager to find a way for their company to give back, the Zales arranged showings of the diamond to the public. The proceeds of the ticket sales were used to establish a fund for peace-supporting missions. Named the ‘Zale Light of Peace’ to promote the company’s ideals and goals, the present diamond has long been used for good and will continue its history of philanthropic giving. A portion of the proceeds of Lot 15 will be donated to USA for UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency.

Lot Essay


Established by concerned American citizens, USA for UNHCR is a nonprofit organization created in support of UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency. Formally known as the Office of the High Commissioner for Refugees, UNHCR was established by the General Assembly of the United Nations in 1950 in the aftermath of the Second World War to help the millions of people who had lost their homes. Today, UNHCR works in 137 countries providing life-saving assistance, including shelter, food, water and medical care for people forced to flee conflict and persecution. UNHCR defends the right of displaced people to reach safety and help them find a place to call home so they can rebuild their lives. Long term, UNHCR works with countries to improve and monitor refugee and asylum laws and policies, ensuring human rights are upheld. In everything we do USA for UNHCR considers refugees and those forced to flee as partners, putting those most affected at the center of planning and decision-making.

Christie’s is proud to share that a portion of the proceeds of Lot 15 will be donated to USA for UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency to support their critical mission.
