🌴Join Us and Help #SaveTheAmazon, One Tourmaline at a Time! ⠀ The Amazon is a precious natural wonder of our world and with its disastrous fires currently raging, the health of our planet is at stake. Brazil, home to a large portion of the Amazon, is also home to a myriad of magnificent natural resources, tourmaline being one of the most precious. ⠀ ⠀ In support of the people and natural habitat of the Amazon, during September, October and November, we at GURHAN will contribute 25% of the profit from online sales of our tourmaline jewelry to the Amazon Forest Fund established by @earthalliance. ⠀ We invite you to enjoy a GURHAN design as you join the effort to save the rainforest.

The joint environmental conservation project launched this summer with a $5 million donation from actor Leonardo DiCaprio and also involves businesswoman and philanthropist Laurene Powell Jobs, the widow of Steve Jobs, and investor and philanthropist Brian Sheth.
Earth Alliance currently has an Amazon Forest Fund, putting 100 percent of the donations directly toward saving the rainforest, where extensive wildfires have been ripping through the land.
Gurhan said it sources many of its gems from Brazil, particularly tourmalines, noting that this season, one of its most popular collections is centered on the gemstone.
Each creation in the collection is one-of-a-kind, making each piece as “unique as the extraordinary tourmalines that are dug from the ground in Brazil,” Gurhan said in a press release about the Amazon fundraising.
Donations can come from sales made online direct to consumers via its e-commerce site as well as wholesale sales to retail partners.
In addition to giving a portion of profits, Gurhan also is offering gift cards for purchase, with proceeds from those going to Earth Alliance as well.
