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.

You can buy the collection at Bergdorf Goodman or here, at ashleypittman.com
