Rachel Bilson traveled to South Africa last month with InStyle to learn about the controversial diamond mining industry there.
After her trip, the actress designed a leather and diamond bracelet to raise money for the non-profit organization Diamond Empowerment Fund, whose mission is "to raise money to support education initiatives that develop and empower economically disadvantaged people in African nations where diamonds are a natural resource."
The money raised through Rachel's bracelet will be used to build student housing at the Johannesburg university, CIDA City Campus.
What a great way to give back; we are firm believers in the power of education - not to get all School House Rock on you, but knowledge really is power.
The cute bracelet is on sale at Macys.com for $100. Twenty dollars from each sale go to the Diamond Empowerment Fund - not bad!
This would make a great Valentine's day gift for your signif other!
