Jewelry Designers Support Philippines Relief Efforts

Two weeks after Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines, disaster relief efforts continue to mount. The jewelry industry, not surprisingly, is doing its part to contribute money where it’s needed.  

Kara Ross is donating 25 percent of the retail price of a select group of handbags to causes supporting Philippines relief efforts. Priced $670–$1,170, the bags—many of which are one-of-a-kind—were hand-woven on wooden looms by artisans in the Philippines. Roughly 15 styles will be available via her website, and the promotion will end when the bags are sold out.

Through at least the end of 2013, Graziela Gems is donating 10 percent of online sales from her Wave Ear Cuffs to the American Red Cross’ Haiyan disaster relief efforts. The earrings—popular with celebs including Jennifer Lawrence and Michelle Dockery—come in two sizes and 10 styles and range in price from $240 to $490.
