Join us for a special fundraising event for the Groothuis family!  This event is being held on November 8th in honor of Jenny's 40th birthday and ongoing legacy.  Funds raised will support the continued needs of the Groothuis family.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

1 Corinthians 13:13

In the center, is a Swiss Blue Topaz. This is the color of the Holy Mother (which Harold thinks she was). It is a trillion shape which stands for the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Surrounding her are her 15 children. 7 white diamonds and 8 black diamonds. Since she and Brad adopted 8 from Africa, they are coming from the "other side" so Harold put them on the bottom half of the circle. The circle stands for the unbroken unity. On the back is inscribed JG, Jenny's initials.

"The Pendant"

Diameter of the pendant is 13mm | Blue Topaz is 7 x 7 x 7mm Estimated retail price for this piece: $1800-$2000

Designed Exclusively  by Harold van Beek of Jewelry by Harold in North Liberty, Iowa.
