We have been in the wholesale jewelry business for over 30 years and for the last 20 years, philanthropy has been at the heart of all that we do both personally and professionally. Lisa Goodman, CEO
For over 20 years we have incorporated our jewelry into philanthropic events and have witnessed how our donations of jewelry played a significant role in increasing event revenues. What we realized is that jewelry and giving evoke the same emotions and that they organically and naturally complement each other. So, we took what we know best (jewelry and fundraising) and created a hybrid business model that fully integrates the two into a mutually beneficial relationship. 24/7, 365 days a year, eCommerce now supports charities in a way that has never been done before.
It was also very important to us that the platform of our business be built to not only take care of people, but our planet as well. We are proud to say that we adhere to and exceed the guidelines that have been established for the jewelry industry. This means that we use only ethically sourced diamonds and gemstones and mostly recycled metals. In addition, our boxes are FSC Certified and all print media we send out is on recycled papers.
We created thejewelingiving.com to offer all different types of beautiful jewelry, at different price points and at the most competitive prices every day! Of course the defining piece that makes our company unique, is that the customer gets to choose which charity they would like to benefit 12.5% from their total purchase. Customer's now become philanthropists without having to spend additional money in order to do so and the charity is afforded the ability to thank the donor and cultivate an ongoing giving relationship with them. Allowing our jewelry shoppers to use our funds to designate to a charity that is personally meaningful to them, is the integral piece to the success of this hybrid business model.
eCommerce jewelry shopping reaches the entire spectrum of donors; current, dormant and potential. We knew if we could build our jewelry website to allow for the entire spectrum of donors to purchase jewelry like they normally would, however, now with the ability to forever associate their purchase to a cause that is near and dear to their heart- the financial outcome would be tremendous. So, we created The Jewel In Giving on a simple concept; share our funds with the everyday jewelry customer to afford them the ultimate jewelry buying experience.
We also made sure to create tools that would help nonprofits navigate the ever changing landscape of philanthropy. The first tool of course is The Jewel In Giving eCommerce site which allows for nonprofits to extend their technological reach and have a steady stream of income. The additional tools that are offered are The Jewel In Giving "Consignment Program" and the Marketing and Fundraising Materials. All of these fundraising opportunities afford nonprofits unique and productive ways to reach and exceed their fundraising goals and fill our hearts at The Jewel In Giving with much joy!
