Gluttony, Absolved. Kinda.

Well, well, well. The Holidays are over, heathens, but that doesn't mean commercialism can stop. Take a break from booze (ish) and hor d'oeuvres, but keep on spending. The economy needs you, dear readers! Feel like a piece of shit buying jewels for yourself on January 5th? Fear not, we've found that some of our favorite designers give back to those in need with every purchase. See? It's, like, charity. Or something. 

 

 

By donating 10% of all profits to assist in funding the Kamboo Dispensary & Kathiani Primary School in Kenya, it's easy to understand why so many jewelry lovers choose to invest in Ashley Pittman. Through her foundation, Ashley has provided the school with a source for clean, drinking water, uniforms, supplies, food and salaries. You can buy the collection at Bergdorf Goodman or here, at ashleypittman.com

 Proceeds from the sales of Buddha Mama go to Tibet House and Kristi House, and the mother/daughter team will always donate to those in need as opportunities present themselves. You can shop the collection, and feel good about doing so, at June Simmons Jewelry and online at Jaimie Geller Jewelry

To be able to do what we love and give back in the process is the biggest blessing anyone could ask for.

Brave founder, Jessica Hendricks, provides job opportunities in a creative, healthy, and happy work environment to local Cambodian artisans,  Additionally, 10% of all profits are donated to fight human trafficking in the Buddhist community. Empowering women and young girls with the purchase of a chic and inexpensive piece of jewelry? We're fans. Shop the line at Peridot Fine Jewelry to support her mom, too. See?! GOOD VIBES.
