CHILDREN’S RIGHTS OPAL GEM STUD

$50.00

This is a talisman to affirm our responsibility to protect, nurture and teach our own and all vulnerable children with strength, grace and understanding. Opal has long been associated with love and innocence.

DETAILS:
  • Handcrafted using 925 sterling silver or 18k gold vermeil
  • Locally designed and sourced
  • Available in ally script or gemstone. Choose a matching pair or one of each.

Each piece comes beautifully custom wrapped in a pink suede pouch and ribboned box. It is then placed in a 8″x10″ canvas bag that can be reused for makeup, jewelry, art supplies, travel or organization.

Infused by master reiki practitioner Maristela Beckman to promote women’s empowerment, strength and courage. Reiki is known as the universal light energy, balancing energy flow and improving wellbeing.

ABOUT THE DESIGN:

The Ally Series was envisioned by our founder Karla and commissioned to jewelry artist Tianna Bastien. These pieces were created with a team of all women to capture not only what allyship means to Karla, but also the strength we all have and the power we possess when coming together.

This series combines key areas of social justice and advocacy with gemstones that provide healing and release positive energies into the world. To pair with the cause of Children’s Rights, she selected the opal, which is said to inspire hope, innocence, purity and happiness with its prism of color.  Opal illuminates positive thoughts and emotions towards oneself.

LETTER FROM KARLA:

There are two moments that come to mind that made me aware of just how vulnerable so many children are in the world. The first was when I has a business that had me exploring the love and relationship sector and I got a glimpse into how many children – mostly girls – were exploited and sold into trafficking throughout the world. The statistics would shock anyone.

The second was when I started working with at-risk youth and youth in the correctional system in the St. John’s Ambulance Dog Therapy Program. Every visit would show me more and more examples of how some kids are barely given a chance to succeed and experience so much trauma. When I started working with Jane at Child Welfare Political Action Committee and learning more about our foster system (which does a terrible job of protecting the kids in it), my eyes were opened even more.

We need to do better, not just for our own children or those in our neighborhood, but for those that don’t have their own support system. This piece reminds me that it is my responsibility, as I believe it is all of ours, to do what I can to help children to succeed and thrive. This is my beacon and call to keep working, as the results are always worth it.

Description

WHAT IS AN ALLY?

The word ally means to unite, build an alliance and come together with those around you. It is an opportunity to look outside of yourself and step out of your comfort zone to see the impact you can have throughout your everyday life. It is also a pledge to offer support when needed, listen, learn and use your own voice and platform when it can magnify the voices of others.

    I received the children’s rights Ally necklace for Christmas from my husband and children.
    I love the necklace, it’s beautiful and timeless.
    What I love more is what it stands for and the issues the company stands up for and brings much needed attention to.
    Knowing that the proceeds all go to charity and give back to our community means alot. This company is making a difference in people’s lives and educating people on issues that matter!
    Thank you for what you do!

    I ordered 4 silver ruby bracelets for me and my 3 sisters. 2020 was a rough year for our family and these bracelets were the perfect gift to show how strong we can be when we work together and something us 4 can look at and smile.

    I just received my gift set today and omg I was blown away by the beautiful packaging and how much care you all put into it and how beautiful the jewelry is. I just ordered 2 sets for my besties, this way we can feel connected to each other even when we’re miles away.
    I also love that you guys aren’t just another company that only cares about the bottom line. You really care about people and our community and it shows <3

    I just bought a silver ruby pendant bracelet for myself and WOW! is all I can say. The packaging was beautiful, the product was stunning, high quality and locally made. I plan on buying all my gifts from you. No place has ever put this much attention into a $60.00 item. Great job!

    My gift friend and I both bought ourselves necklaces for xmas for surviving 2020. We now have this custom secret way of communicating so when we are in a Zoom mgmt meeting and I ask her how she is? she rubs her ally pendant 1 for shitty, 2 for doing okay and 3 for surviving with the help of some wine
    I also loved the care they put into the packaging and all the little extras they added. Already looking for a mother’s day gift.
    Keep up the amazing work!

    Hi Karla,
    I heard your story and about your on-line shop via Global News. I knew it would be the perfect fit for some of my Xmas shopping. I love the idea of giving in multiple ways (gifts that include a charity element are the perfect fit with my family).
    I just received the opal necklace in the mail. All I can say is WOW. Not only is the necklace perfect but the two beautiful little cotton bags, suede pouch along with the thoughtful cards and messages inside makes it all the more special. I also wanted to thank you for the gift that was just for me. Your thoughtfulness and kindness made my day.
    Thank you for supporting local Canadian artists and charities, and for your inspiration.
    Wishing you continued happiness and strength on your journey.
