To celebrate his work with the charitable organization, Face Forward, NFL football player Darren McFadden received a pendant with 25.24 carats of diamonds and 34.97carats of colored sapphires set in white gold.
The custom-pendant was given by fine jewelry brand, Miiori. The item features the “FlashSet” technique patented by the jewelry manufacturer. The field of diamonds in the center of the piece changes from a University of Arkansas Razorback (see top picture), mascot of McFadden’s alma mater, to his Oakland Raiders jersey number, “20,” in a holographic effect (as pictured below).

Late last year, the Oakland Raiders running back attended an event at Michael Beaudry’s flagship boutique in Beverly Hills in support of Face Forward, Inc., which provides facial reconstructive surgery for victims of violence. Beaudry began collaboration with MIIORI in 2010 and is now the North American distributor of the Miiori Collection.
“We immediately connected over a mutual passion for design and philanthropy,” said Michael Beaudry, president of Beaudry International. “He was impressed by the unique edginess of the MIIORI Collection and, of course, wanted to make a contribution, so the idea for the customized piece was born.”
