Shopping and Giving Back

May 29, 2012 at 10:34 am , by

As a fashion editor, I get pitches everyday for products that donate a portion of the proceeds to a charity. And while this is generous, it’s often only a small percentage of the purchase price that actually makes it to the charity. That’s what makes Joan Hornig’s jewelry really special.

Every piece she makes gives 100% of the proceeds to a charity of your choice. You can choose from over 700 charities at

And her jewelry is beautiful. I especially love this brass cuff that was molded from alligator skin.  (Check out this amazing outtake from our June 2012 beauty feature. Gorgeous model + Joshua Tree + BCBG dress + Joan Hornig bracelet = Perfection!)

You’ll find everything from fine jewelry that rings up at over $6000 for the true philanthropist, or silver charm necklaces under $100. I know it sounds cliche but there really is something for everyone…and every charity.

Happy (guilt-free) shopping!

  1. I think this sounds wonderful, that this jewelry designer would donate 100% of the proceeds of her jewelry that’s purchased to the charity of your choice!
