Cynthia Erivo—actress, activist, and style icon—is beloved for a host of reasons. The London-born Erivo is a Tony, Emmy, and Grammy Award winner and has been nominated for two Academy Awards—all by the ripe old age of 33. And here I was celebrating for getting out of bed before my alarm this morning.
Jewelry purveyors may appreciate the multifaceted talent’s penchant for good jewels, a fact that has been celebrated continuously over the last few awards-show seasons. Erivo is consistently outfitted in some of the best accessories (and fashions, for that matter), so it’s fair to say that any news coupling the almost-EGOT winner and our industry is welcome and exciting.
So here it is: Fine jewelry showroom Muse x Muse has announced that Erivo is the latest ambassador to its Have a Heart initiative, in which a collection of heart-shape charms from a roster of talented designers benefit a selection of charitable causes with its proceeds.
For her part as ambassador, Erivo has selected the Loveland Foundation, a charity founded in 2018 to bring opportunity and healing to communities of color—Black women and girls, especially—through fellowships, residency programs, listening tours, and more. A selection of 20 heart charms (all shown on the necklace above) has been curated to benefit the Loveland Foundation, with 10% of each sale going to the charity.
Each charm comes from a different designer, giving us an impressive list of creators to match the power of Erivo’s talent: Bea Bongiasca, Buddha Mama, Christina Alexiou, Elena Votsi, Holly Dyment, Jenna Blake, Kwit, Lito, Marlo Laz, Michelle Fantaci, Nancy Newberg, Stephanie Windsor, Tara Hirshberg, and Ten Thousand Things.
The collection is now available exclusively on Moda Operandi as a limited-time trunk show that ends on August 7. A selection of necklaces and bracelets are available, and each charm can be purchased separately, with prices ranging from $440 to $9,880.
