Farmington, CT (PRWEB) September 25, 2008
One Pearl Girl was created to give younger women and girls the opportunity to wear beautiful jewelry while at the same time, through the purchase, give a gift to others less fortunate.
A substantial portion of the purchase price of a piece of One Pearl jewelry is donated to non-profit organizations that are dedicated to improving the lives of children. For anyone purchasing a piece of One Pearl jewelry, this means that not only are they investing in a beautiful, multifunctional piece of jewelry, but they are also giving a gift on a much broader scale.
Besides donating a large percentage of sales to charity, founder and designer Theresa Hines has found another way to involve One Pearl in charitable activities. 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.
Theresa Hines created the concept of One Pearl jewelry during an exceptionally difficult time in her life when 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.
One Pearl jewelry is part of a new movement that aims to eliminate the boundaries between retail business and charitable giving. Often referred to as socially conscious fashion, these types of companies sell products in order to support organizations that are either eco or human friendly. One Pearl was formed to raise awareness of non-profits as well as raise funds for these organizations.
To date, One Pearl has donated over 50% of total sales revenue to non-profits that are dedicated to improving the lives of children. These organizations include the Cambodian Living Arts Organization, the Saving Teens in Crisis Collaborative, and the Watkinson School Global Studies Programs.
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.
