Brazilian jewellery brand Graziela Gems collaborates with the Ian Somerhalder Foundation to raise awareness about animal rights and environmental protection. A philanthropist, designer and founder of brand, Graziela Kaufman decides to combine her passion for jewellery and humanitarian work by creating an exclusive collection to support the foundation.
Designed and created by American actress Nikki Reed and Graziela, the collection features animal-inspired pieces that was reflective of their love for animals especially rhinoceros and elephants. Taking the details of the animals as inspiration, look out for pieces that resemble the rhino horns and elephant ears.
The Earth and Ocean collections on the other hand, are inspired by waves and its textures. Using materials such as jade to capture the colours of Earth and the ocean, the gems were specifically chosen by actor Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed.
