There is nothing we love more than beautiful jewelry that supports a good cause. So in this season of giving, we would like to give a shout-out to three designers whose collections not only continue to dazzle us, but who also share some of their profits with deserving charities. And the giving doesn’t stop when the holidays are over, this is jewelry that gives back to charity all year long.—Sue Perry

 

 

The activist actress, Angelina Jolie has partnered with famed jewelry designer Robert Procop to create the Style of Jolie collection.  Not only are the pieces in this collection drop-dead gorgeous, such as the emerald dazzlers the acress is wearing below, 100 percent of the profits go to the Education Partnership for Children of Conflict, the nonprofit organization founded by Angelina in 2007. We’ve been told that several primary schools have already been completed, including one in a high-conflict region of Afghanistan. Planning for additional schools is also underway in other areas of turmoil.

In addition to its charming “B” collection, which donates some proceeds to the declining bee population, the new “Tiny Hearts” collection shares some of its profits with the Babies Heart Fund at New York’s Columbia Medical Center. The collection, which includes the ring below, was inspired by designer Patricia Gumuchian’s daughter, whose heart condition was successfully treated at Columbia.
