We are very impressed with the nutritional health programs GiveIndia.org has pioneered in Indian schools, and are pleased to be able to help fund them.

NOLA Jewels LLC, wholesalers and online distributors of jewelry featuring natural gemstones from around the world, will begin donating a portion of each sale to help children in developing countries as part of a launch for their 2014 Mardi Gras Trinity collection. An organization involved in providing nutritious lunches to needy school children in India is the first recipient.

“For many third world children, the school lunch is the only complete meal they have during an entire day,” says Ja-ne de Abreu, the owner of NOLA Jewels LLC. “We are very impressed with the nutritional health programs GiveIndia.org has pioneered in Indian schools, and are pleased to be able to help fund them.”

The donated portion of the average order provides nutritious school lunches to one child for an entire month, adds de Abreu.

A world traveler who ventured into the jewelry business almost by accident, de Abreu says it was a combination of witnessing the exquisite craftsmanship she encountered abroad, plus her own interest in helping improve the lives of the village artisans creating such great jewelry, that got her commercially involved.

“When I traveled I did not initially plan on buying up goods to be marketed. But what I saw was so incredible, and at such affordable prices, that I was simply captivated by the thought of being able to bring it home to friends and the broader marketplace.”

Born in New Orleans with parents from Brazil, de Abreu has been immersed in both Carnival as well as Mardi Gras traditions and now combines both with her Mardi Gras Trinity collection. As noted on its website, NOLA Jewels LLC focuses on providing uniquely styled gemstone jewelry at affordable prices. The collection of stylish earrings, pendants, rings and other handmade accessories offered are selected or designed by Ja-ne de Abreu herself, often on visits to remote overseas locales where the jewelry is actually made.
