Sparkling Shopping for Good in Wellesley


WELLESLEY, Mass. — Customers gathered for a reception on November 9 at Impulse, a chic jewelry store on Linden Street, featuring original, fierce and elegant designs, could take solace in splurging on beautiful pieces as a portion of sales benefitted the Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB).

Over drinks and appetizers at the jewelry store, owner Veronica Aboyan Sagherian teamed up with the GBFB, with 10 percent of sales going to the organization.

In addition, the names of those who donated a minimum of $25 to the GBFB were entered into a raffle to win a print by Boston artist Seth B. Minkin.

The event featured a trunk show of extra-large scarves with imprints of various paintings by Minkin. In fact, the scarves proved to be so popular that they will be on sale through the holidays.

Impulse is a sister store to Adamas Fine Jewelry in Newton. The two stores are owned and operated by siblings Sagherian and Anto Aboyan.

Said Sagherian, “Adamas Fine Jewelry and Impulse have a long history of supporting causes that are dear to our hearts and to those of the communities we serve…from supporting local schools to Boston Children’s hospital, we want to leave a positive impact on our communities. We started supporting the Greater Boston Food Bank a couple of years ago when we learned how widespread their efforts are in providing food to local pantries around the area. To date, along with the generosity of our clients and friends and other local businesses, have raised several thousand dollars for the GBFB and look forward to increasing our fundraising dollars year after year.”
