Jewelry Industry Rallies to Raise Funds for Hurricane Harvey Victims
Hurricane Harvey, the devastating storm that’s claimed 38 lives and displaced upwards of 32,000 people in Houston (according to The New York Times), has prompted a growing number of jewelry brands and industry entities to garner donations to help relief efforts.

The trio of jewelry organizations has created a GoFundMe page to collect donations for independent jewelers within the Houston area that are hardest hit by Hurricane Harvey. “We are asking the jewelry community to band together and help fellow jewelers in their recovery efforts,” reads the page. “All funds raised will be dispersed equally and directly to independent jewelry stores, regardless of affiliation.”
