I'm all about giving back with my purchase. When I heard about how Satya Jewelry was donating 10% of proceeds from each Arm Yourself bracelet to Home of Hope, which provides shelter and education for exploited girls in South Africa I knew I had to share!
Here's the interview with Satya Scainetti | Designer/Co-Founder Satya Jewelry

A. The snake itself is not related to the charity. We pick a different charity for each seasonal collection to highlight them.
Q. Why did you choose the colors in the collection?
A. We always look in the market for the stones available this year emerald is the Pantone and color this year the black diamonds look beautiful with sterling silver.
