KATHERINE PARR JEWELRY DIVERSITY ROCKS BRACELET REVIEW
In the spirit of Christmas and giving back, I’m bringing you this beautiful Katherine Parr agate bracelet called Diversity Rocks. Handcrafted by talented Turquoise Mountain artists living in Kabul, Afghanistan, this bracelet is not just a fabulous statement piece, it represents a vivid culture of artisans whose success has been recognised by the Smithsonian and the United Nations.
I love this multi-coloured bracelet. It stands for style, substance, and sustainability; it’s for girls like you and me who were born to dazzle and intrigue. And while I’m ‘rocking’ this Katherine Parr bracelet, I love that I’m giving back to the artisans of Turquoise Mountain.
A not-for-profit organisation founded by HRH The Prince of Wales, Turquoise Mountain has been honoured by the UN for its success and sustainability initiatives. The organisation helps local, talented artisans do something they love like creating jewellery, and make a living at it. I love how these artists use traditional jewellery techniques and one of the oldest gemstones on earth – agate – to craft pieces like this fabulous multi-coloured bracelet from Katherine Parr.
Diversity Rocks is part of the Unity and Diversity collection from Katherine Parr that celebrates cultural and national pride. It’s that special, you won’t find it on the GEMOLOGUE Christmas Gift Guide 2017! It’s one of those last-minute gift ideas, perfect for Christmas or New Year’s. It might not be haute jewellery, but it’s precious to me. Its beauty stands out in tradition, sustainability, diversity, and style. It symbolises global hope and unity in a troubled world where we need to come together and give back to the community by supporting talented artisans.
A fabulous statement piece, certain to catch everyone’s eye this festive season.
Katherine Parr Diversity Rocks Bracelet is available online for $1500.
