Three Ways To Make Your Jewelry Help More Than Just Your Wardrobe

Everyone wants to look good, but no one wants their fashion to be responsible for sweatshops or environmental destruction. We've already given you a bunch of ways to shop for clothes that are good for the globe, but what about your accessories?

Introducing three ways to shop for unique jewelry and affect social change, all without leaving your laptop.

1. Emerge Global

Emerge is a non-profit organization based in Sri Lanka that aims to help female victims of sexual abuse reclaim their lives through employment and art. All of the jewelry is handmade by the women, and also happens to be very beautiful. Many of them like this ribbon necklace ($22) combine colorful ribbons and beads for an effect that will brighten any outfit.

2. The Leakey Collection

This Kenya-based retailer uses natural materials to manufacture their beads and other products. They are dedicated to both sustaining the environment and providing employment and business training to rural Kenyans. Their products also give you a chance to show off your creative side. You can buy assembled pieces like Zulugrass bracelets ($30), or mix and match single bead strands ($13) to create a look that is all you.

3. Brilliant Earth

Just say no to blood diamonds. Brilliant Earth not only sells gems harvested using environmentally and socially responsible practices, they also donate 5% of their profits back to communities that have suffered from the exploitation of the jewelry industry. Not a bad way to buy some bling like these silver leaf earrings with green sapphires ($175).
