Why you should careJewelry is beautiful, but often, the way it was created can be ugly.
by Kate Houser
Jewelry is one of our absolute favorite forms of self-expression. It’s timeless, classic and can tell a story we can’t express easily with words. Whether it’s a bracelet you and your best friend have from your trip to Mexico, a watch from your great-grandfather or a pair of 10-year anniversary earrings from your lover, every piece has a story.
Now, imagine if that story was something even MORE impactful than it already is? Like, a necklace that provides a week of computer classes to a woman in Columbia. Or a bracelet that gives back to suicide survivors? Giving your loved one a piece of jewelry that means something to you AND helps someone in need sounds like the most perfect gift to us! To help you narrow down your choices we’ve rounded up some of our favorite give back jewelry brands below so you can start telling your story and give someone else the chance to start theirs.
Shop from sustainable and ethical brands who help provide jobs to the homeless, save women from human trafficking or help fund adoptions, now THAT’s just as beautiful as that gold chain around your neck girl!
