Ashley Morgan and Yael Designs launch new collection to benefit Sierra Leone
The Leone Collection is set to launch in Fall of 2011. Proceeds from sales will benefit Schools for Salone, an organization which rebuilds rural schools and empowers communities through education in Sierra Leone. “New schools infuse villages with pride and give the people of Sierra Leone renewed hope for a brighter future,” said Cindy Nofziger, Executive Director of Schools for Salone. “We’re excited to partner with Yael Designs and Ashley Morgan to help achieve our goal of building a school for the Lungi community.”
The line features custom cut, conflict free black diamonds with seed pearl and white diamond accents. Rings, earrings, and necklaces are set in blackened recycled 18k gold.
”As jewelry designers, we wanted to do our part to help rebuild Sierra Leone – a country that has been so negatively impacted by the diamond trade industry.” – Yehouda Saketkhou, Yael Designs
