Jared ®, a specialty retail jewelry chain in the U.S., announced today to help celbrate Pride Month by creating a limited-edition ring to commemorate the five-year anniversary of marriage equality. The brand also announced that, through sales of the ring, it has committed to raising $400,000 to support the six charitable partners involved in iHeartMedia and Procter & Gamble’s ‘Can’t Cancel Pride’: A COVID-19 Relief Benefit for the LGBTQ+ Community virtual celebration.
Love Proudly Multi-Color Rainbow Ring
Whoever you love, complete the look with this 14K gold masterpiece, featuring 9 natural semi-precious gemstones including black spinel, smoky quartz, garnet, citrine, peridot, blue topaz, amethyst and white sapphire to pay tribute to the Pride rainbow and engraved with the date in which the Supreme Court passed the Marriage Equality Act.
The 4mm Love Proudly Ring Multi-Color Rainbow is available in 14K Yellow or white gold for $499.99
Profits from sales of the ring, for sale through July 5, 2020, will go to the Can’t Cancel Pride Fund at the Greater Cincinnati Foundation with a minimum contribution of $400,000. The ‘Can’t Cancel Pride Fund’ supports organizations that have a track record for creating positive change within the LGBTQ+ communities, including GLAAD, SAGE, The Trevor Project, the National Black Justice Coalition, CenterLink and OutRight Action International.
While Pride month certainly looks different this year, Jared remains passionate about showing its support for the LGBTQ+ community and more importantly, helping those in need during this difficult time. As a brand that believes in celebrating life and expressing love, we can think of no better way to extend our #LoveCantWait campaign than by partnering with P&G and iHeartMedia for this celebration.
Bill Brace, Chief Marketing Officer and Jared Executive General Manager
Jared joins iHeartMedia and P&G to inspire and uplift people through this virtual benefit, which aims to raise awareness and funds for LGBTQ+ communities most impacted by COVID-19.
