Jewelry That Gives Back to Oceans

I have been a bit obsessed lately with two Instagram accounts that I absolutely love: @paulnicklen and @Mitty. Paul Nicklen and Cristina Mittermeier respectively are prolific underwater photographers and founders of Seal Legacy, an organization committed to creating healthy and abundant oceans for us and the planet.

It’s funny: As much as I love the oceans I don’t really visit them often. Sure, I fly over them often and at long stretches and I take photos of the ocean from a distance like the one above that I took in the Philippines, but I never get up close and personal to the ocean. I would like to change that one day. In the meantime, I live vicariously through Nicklen and Mittermeier. Also, as I sat looking at their work I wondered how I can help the oceans in my own little way and you can, too. Here are jewelry companies that have beautiful bling while also giving back to oceans, ocean clean-ups, reefs, and ocean life.

Humuhumunukunukuapua’a Bracelet: Profits go to ocean clean-ups. Also, each bracelet is made from netting pulled from oceans.

Sterling Silver Whale Tail Ring: 15% goes to ocean conservation

Natural Cowrie Shell Bracelet in Rose Gold: 10% goes to coral reef conservation.

Sterling Silver Tiny Sea Turtle Earrings: Profits go to Sea Turtle Conservancy of Florida

The Turtle Clasp: 15% of the profits from each Turtle Clasp sold are donated to Mass Audubon’s sea turtle rescue program.

Puravida Bracelet: Profits go to saving coral reefs.
