Washington, NC (PRWEB) February 15, 2011
Setting this year’s fashion standards for jewelry, swimsuits and accessories, the highly coveted Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2011 landed on store shelves around the world today. For the second year in a row, SI Swimsuit teams up with Guy Harvey Jewelry to accessorize their infamous bikini-clad supermodels with gold, diamonds and sterling silver. The appeal of Guy Harvey Jewelry to SI Swimsuit lies not only in its intricate design, but also in its philanthropic ties to marine life conservation.
While SI hand picks jewelry designers with mass appeal and strong business values, they also look for designers who support worthy causes like the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation. A percentage of all profits generated from the sale of Guy Harvey Jewelry funds the non-profit, international, public organization built on conserving marine environments.
The Ocean Foundation works to protect marine habitats and their species, create capacity building and increase ocean literacy. It also funds the Guy Harvey Research Institute which, most recently, has been credited with discovering the world’s first virgin birth by a shark.
Diane Smith, Senior Editor at Sports Illustrated Swimsuit, remarks how “wonderful it is to have an effect on such a worthy cause.”
With approximately 7000 different Guy Harvey Jewelry pieces to choose from, the design options were endless when it came to finding the perfect jewelry match to the infamous swimsuits worn in this issue. Guy Harvey Jewelry pieces can be seen on models Damaris Lewis, Genevieve Morton, Izabel Goulart and Kenza Fourati. Last year 3 Guy Harvey Jewelry pieces were chosen for inclusion in the SI Swimsuit Edition, including cover model Brooklyn Decker.
“Being chosen for the second year in a row as a SI Swimsuit jewelry designer is not only exciting, but it means we’ve gained respect as a brand,” states Margaret Fortescue, director of operations at Nautora. “We are family owned and operated and have been in business almost 30 years. Three years ago we saw a tremendous opportunity with nautical jewelry and launched our sister company Nautora. When Nautora became the exclusive jewelry designer for Guy Harvey Inc., it gave us a tremendous platform to promote marine conservation, something we are very passionate about. Now, with the 2011 SI Swimsuit feature, we have a worldwide opportunity to spread the word about marine conservation. Philanthropy is, and always will be, our core element and main focus.”
