The Diamond Empowerment Fund Bracelet Does Good!

By Nina Glaser July 3, 2015

The Diamond Empowerment Fund (DEF) is introducing a new version of the Green Charity Bracelet, part of The Green Bracelet Initiative that raises funds to support educational initiatives to empower the next generation of leaders in diamond communities around the world, including Africa and India, and J.R. Dunn Jewelers has them!

The stretch bracelet is crafted with 8mm green malachite beads and has a gold-tone station with two polished diamond accents. The small size features 18 beads and measures 6.5”. The large size has 21 beads and measures 7.5” long. Both cost is $125. Each bracelet is assembled in the U.S. and comes in a gift box. The bracelet elements are no accident! Green is the color of a number of African flags and is symbolic of growth. The diamond accents represent the bright futures of those who are fortune enough to have access to higher education as a result of the support the DEF receives. They’ve been seen on the wrists of some prominent figures from the film, music and sports worlds who understand the importance of being socially conscious.

Every purchase makes a difference! More than two thousand college-age students have received financial assistance or been awarded scholarships to assist with the costs of tuition, supplies, meals and more, thanks to the generous support of the DEF. Currently, funds raised total more than one billion dollars!
