Farmington, CT (PRWEB) August 18, 2008
One Pearl jewelry has introduced a unique line of bridesmaids bracelets celebrating the importance of the bridesmaid to the wedding party. Each One Pearl piece features a black or white pearl symbolizing the very specialness, and uniqueness, of the recipient as well as symbolizing a life transformed through a One Pearl purchase.
One Pearl donates a significant percentage of total sales to non-profit organizations, so with each bridesmaid gift, the purchaser is not only celebrating a new life, but also making a contribution to those in need.
Founder and designer Theresa Wing Hines created the concept of One Pearl jewelry. During an exceptionally difficult time in Theresa's life, one of her sons needed intensive treatment for behavioral issues. To Theresa, the idea of the formation of a pearl, which begins as an irritant within a mollusk but emerges a gem, seemed a perfect metaphor for the transformation her son was undergoing. Since then, each contrasting pearl has come to symbolize any individual who is close to the heart of One Pearl women everywhere.
One Pearl has provided Theresa Hines with a way to combine her love of design and fashion with a desire to support causes she believes in. As a result, One Pearl donates a significant percentage of total sales to non-profit organizations that promote education or healthcare in some significant way.
For brides who are purchasing One Pearl jewelry, this means they are not only giving a gift to their bridesmaids, but they are also giving a gift on a much broader scale. One Pearl currently supports the following charities: the Cambodian Living Arts Organization, the Savings Teens in Crisis Collaborative, and the Watkinson School Global Studies Programs. More information on each of these charities can be found at http://www.onepearl.com.
The One Pearl line consists of both necklaces and bracelets made of pearls as well as semiprecious stones. Styles range from classic pearl necklaces to chic and modern beaded strands that can be worn as bracelets, necklaces, belts, or even anklets. Additionally, there is a One Pearl Girl line with items designed especially for young girls. Pearls have long been considered perfect wedding gifts because they symbolize purity and innocence. The Latin word for pearl literally means "unique", attesting to the fact that no two pearls are identical.
Besides donating a large percentage of sales to charity, Theresa has found another way to involve One Pearl in charitable activities. The custom One Pearl silk jewelry pouches are made in Cambodia by a non-profit organization that trains women to weave, and whose profits fund education and medical care in many parts of Cambodia.
