Eco-friendly and philanthropic jewelry that looks good and aids Gulf Coast cleanup? Enter New York City-based Real Jewels. The makers of fine jewelry, from 100% recycled precious metals, fair trade stones, and conflict-free diamonds, have created the Save our Shores (SOS) collection comprised of a recycled sterling silver charm necklace and bracelet, featuring the iconic image of a pelican.

All proceeds from the collection will be donated to the Waterkeeper Alliance's Save Our Gulf initiative which supports Gulf Waterkeepers working to protect local communities and the environment from the impacts of the BP oil spill. Both the necklace and bracelet retail for $85, and are conveniently available online at Real Jewels.

And while only the SOS charm aids the restoration initiative, the jewelry line has many more eco-friendly jewelry options worth checking out. View them at Real Jewels.
