Giving Tuesday // Jewelry that Gives Back

Today I'm sharing a combination that I love: jewelry and giving back. In honor of Giving Tuesday, I'm sharing 15 companies that do more than just sell fashionable jewelry - they help the world. Below are places that you can purchase beautiful bracelets, necklaces, and more, as well as leave an impact on those in need.





1.

The Giving Keys was created to help combat homelessness in Los Angeles. Through their company, jobs are provided to those transitioning out of homelessness. Not only do they offer jobs, but a community through volunteering, mentorship, and friendship.

With Alex and Ani's ever growing popularity, they've found a way to give back to different charities around the world. With limited edition charity bracelets, you can choose the cause you'd like to support. When you purchase your bracelet, Alex and Ani will give a percentage of profit to that charity. It's as simple as that!

828 Movement is a non-profit organization that supports education in underfunded schools. Each bracelet tells a story of equality, honoring the Past, Present, and Future. With each sale, 100% of the proceeds go to schools across the United States.

Utilizing an online app, the company connects talented artists to global economies, who otherwise would be limited to local sales.
