Ukraine jewellery for Peace

Pandora, DressX, Eden Presley and Sig Ward jewellery have all either created jewellery with profits donated to the Ukraine humanitarian crisis or are donating money to help Ukraine.

Jewellery brands are stepping up their support of the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. The jewellery brand Pandora last week donated $1million to UNICEF’s efforts to help children affected in Ukraine.

Pandora is one of a number of jewellery brands and designers that are donating to charities and supporting Ukraine through the sale of jewellery.

DressX, the online digital fashion platform which was founded by a Ukrainian team, has also launched a collection of digital pieces, including a Fashion For Peace Earring. Proceeds will be donated to the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine. Buy your pieces here.

Meanwhile, Eden Presley has designed a limited edition version of her “Peace & Love” closure necklace with all proceeds from the sales to be donated to United Help Ukraine, a non-profit volunteer charity. The necklace is set in 14k yellow, rose or white gold and available with a 16” or 22” white diamond set heart chain. The peace sign lock closure is double sided – one side with white diamonds and the other set with yellow and blue sapphires.

Sig Ward Jewelry is donating all proceeds from the sale of two Reeded gold rings to Razom for Ukraine, a non-profit charity. Each ring is set in 14k yellow gold with deep blue lolite or vibrant citrine.

London-based Roxanne First is donating a ‘LOVE’ necklace in yellow gold with yellow and blue sapphires to raise money for British-Ukrainian Aid.

Donations made to the jeweller’s Just Giving page will go directly to support those in Ukraine. First will randomly select one donator to receive the necklace, as well as adding £3,000 to the collected funds.

For the months of March and April, Ellis Mhairi Cameron will be donating 100% of the proceeds from the sale of all sizes of her Nugget Stud Earrings to NOVA Ukraine and People in Need.

“Like all of you, I am distraught that Ukraine is in such turmoil. I have friends there who are trying to make their way to safety, but many are unable to leave, and I want to do whatever I can to help,” the jeweller has said.

Meanwhile, 20% from the sale of any blue topaz or lemon quartz rings by jeweller Louise Sinclair will be donated to Red Cross Ukraine.

The bold, 9k yellow gold cocktail rings are claw set with either a London Blue Topaz, with pink tourmalines on the ring shank, or a bright Lemon Quartz, contrasted with orange sapphires.

Anabela Chan is now accepting pre-orders for her Sunflower Bloom earrings for delivery in April-May. 100% of the proceeds pledged will go to support the non-profit charities CARE and Save The Children UK, aiding women, children and families in need in Ukraine.

The stunning recycled aluminium and 18k gold vermeil sunflower earrings are hand-painted with ivory and yellow enamel, and set with lab-grown yellow sapphires and pavé-set white diamonds.

Robinson Pelham has created a special bracelet using its colourful signature beads to raise essential funds. The handmade bracelets, which cost £100, are composed of blue and yellow Murano glass beads strung on a silver chain and are available now via Robinson Pelham’s Instagram account (@robinsonpelham). Simply message the team directly to order.

100% of each sale will go to the British Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal, to provide essential food, water, first aid, medicine, clothing and shelter.

Creator of the instantly-recognisable enamelled Hot Lips rings, the jeweller Solange Azagury-Partridge will be donating all profits from the sale of either her Royal Blue Hot Lips ring or Banana Yellow Hot Lips ring, both £215, to the British Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal.

The same charity will also benefit from sales of Annoushka’s Helping Hands collection. 100% of the proceeds of these 14ct gold charm pendants will be donated to the Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal.

London jewellers Hirsh also have an in-house leather accessories studio, which is responsible for creating its signature graphic handbags. Now, the same studio has created a special leather handbag charm to raise funds for Choose Love, a charity which helps refugees and displaced people with everything from medical care to shelter and legal advice. Each charm costs £250 and all of the proceeds will go to Choose Love.

Watch makers are also stepping in to offer their support. Linde Werdelin is producing a limited series of its classic 3 Timer with the colours of the Ukrainian flag across its dial, bezel and strap. All profits from sales will go directly to the British Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal.

In a statement issued at the beginning of Paris Fashion Week, yesterday, Ralph Toledano, President of the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode called for reflection:

“As the greater fashion family gathers for Paris Fashion Week®, war has brutally hit Europe and plunged the Ukrainian people into fear and upheaval.

Creation is based on principles of freedom, under any circumstances. And fashion has always contributed to individual and collective emancipation and expression across our societies.  

Given the present context, the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode encourages you to experience the shows of the coming days with solemnity, and in reflection of these dark hours.”
