Heart of Gold
What It Is: Yes it may look like an ordinary charm bracelet (which I love, btw), but this pretty little wrist accessory is a whole lot more. It’s created by a company called Altruette, which, in exchange for your purchase of their 14 Karat Gold Plate or Sterling Silver Plate charms, donates a significant portion of proceeds back to charity. With dozens of charms to choose from, it’s easy to create a custom piece of jewelry that has significance for your giftee, and means something in a grander sense. Best of all, it’s the type of gift that keeps on giving – you can keep on buying charms for the lucky recipient to add to their collection.
Who It’s For: Your altruistic mom, as a way to give thanks and give back. Your gem of a wife, as a cool way to celebrate your anniversary year-over-year. Your daughter, as an entry to the world of jewelry that also teaches great values.
What It Costs: The bracelets themselves start at $130. The charms are $75+.
