Actor Morgan Freeman was nominated for an Oscar for his portrayal of Nelson Mandela in the movie” Invictus”. The custom made “46664” bangle worn by the actor during the Academy Awards was highlighted by the media. During the World Cup this year in South Africa the bangle in question was sold for one million South African Rand which is equivalent to $137,000.
The 46664 bangles are made to support the 46664 campaign which continues Mandela’s charity efforts and humanitarian work, including the prevention of Aids globally. The unique number came about by combining Mandela’s Robben Island prison number 466 with the year of imprisonment which was 1964. Sabine Roeber had designed the emerald and black diamond platinum 46664 bangle for Freeman.
Julian Frame was the lucky one who bought the exclusive bangle. He is the co-founder and CEO of the South African sports lifestyle retail chain The Cross Trainer. Frame had established his company the same year as the 1995 Rugby World Cup, the event that inspired “Invictus”. All the proceeds will go to the Nelson Mandela Foundation and used for the prevention of HIV/AIDS. TheBangle.com is offering a variety of 46664 bangles in copper, pure silver, gold and platinum ranging from $25 to $15,000.
