British jeweller Solange Azagury-Partridge recently held a charity afternoon tea party in aid of the Hong Kong Juvenile Diabetes Association at the designer's boutique in Central's IFC Mall.

Well-heeled tai-tais dug deep into their purses in support of the cause. Although Azagury-Partridge was absent, the association's chairwoman, Joanna Hotung, was present to chit-chat with VIPs as they nibbled macaroons and berries, and sipped tea.

Guests tried on pieces from the brand's latest Chinese Zodiac collection, including the 'menagerie' necklace, which holds charms of the 12 animals of the zodiac as well as a bee and a snail.

Ten per cent of profits from sales will be donated to the association, and the donation period has just been extended to February 17.
