About Crystal Charity Ball
Each year begins with the Crystal Charity Selection process of vetting agencies that serve Dallas County children. At the conclusion of this four month process in early February, the Beneficiaries are announced. The next nine months are spent working hard raising significant funding for specific projects of the selected Beneficiaries. Once all the committed funds are raised it is time to celebrate. A celebration ball is held in honor of our generous donors to express appreciation.
The goal for the 2015 Crystal Charity Ball is over $6 million for the first time in the gala’s history! The final event of the year is always filled with a night of fun, philanthropy, and a couple of surprises! There is still time to donate to this wonderful cause by going to their website or to bid in the silent auction.
Cook Diamonds is thrilled to be a returning silent auction donor for more than 15 years. Try your luck in the name of charity and bid on these gorgeous green quartz and yellow diamond earrings.

This event is a celebration of life, county music and dancing are all part the evenings festivities. We at Cook Diamond’s love helping good people get into the spirit of giving in style. Country music’s most revered performers have entertained at the ball throughout its 40-year history and this year the tradition continues with country sensation Tim McGraw.
What do you wear to an event like this? Denim, diamonds and pearls! Following the jewelry trends from this year’s red carpet events, we recommend going with large statement pieces to highlight facial features and a show stopping bracelet. We love this Vincent Peach Tahitian Pearl and Diamond bracelet with a bright red lip and eight carat diamond stud earrings. For a little more color, try an Australian Opal lariat necklace.
