Many industries have taken to social media to spread a message of positivity during such a trying time. Jewelry designers are doing what they can on Instagram to support those affected by Covid-19 with donations and heartfelt letters. Here are a couple of examples:
Sloane Street Jewelry from Newport Beach, California
"The greatest heroes during this pandemic are the healthcare workers on the frontlines, who are battling to help treat and save thousands of lives. We have felt extremely helpless during this time, but wanted to show our appreciate to these incredible individuals! Though we cannot help with medical resources, we thought we could bring a little joy with what we do best! As a thank you, we have packaged 200 #SSjewels leather bracelets and a sweet treat (all properly sanitized!) to be gifted to the true heroes in our local hospitals! ✨💙We would like to gift to as many as we can, so while supplies last, please TAG a relative, friend or anyone that is battling COVID-19 in the hospitals daily, so we can connect with them to send a gift to express our immense gratitude, completely FREE! Staying home is more than binge watching #TigerKing (though it’s a perk) It’s about the lives we are saving so these amazing people can do their jobs and continue saving more! #StayHomeSaveLives #ThankYouHealthCareHeroes"
Retrouvai from Los Angeles, California
"So rewind several years ago to when I designed the lion signet. I intended for this piece to serve as a symbol of strength through whatever circumstances one finds themselves in....The courage to lead and persevere through closure, new beginnings, failure, or great success. The lion is engraved with ‘fearless and extraordinary’. Today, I picked up this ring and found myself inspired. The immense burden on our paramedics, doctors, nurses, and care workers at this time is beyond anything. I can’t really think of another collective group who embody the lions message more than these professionals, at this time. I’d like to humbly make two small gestures: 1. I will donate 100% of the sale of one lion signet purchased from our website to @getusppe 2. I would love to bring joy to one additional medical worker in the form of a lion signet pendant (I’m thinking it’s harder for medical workers to wear rings at work). To nominate someone you know to receive this necklace, email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line ‘fearless and extraordinary’. Spread joy!"
