Jewelry Industry Responds to War in Ukraine

The jewelry industry is a compassionate one. In times of crisis, we always see outpourings of empathy and activism from within the community. Faced with the invasion of Ukraine by Russia, a new crisis that’s already resulted in hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians fleeing to neighboring countries—and millions more living in daily fear of war’s ravages—jewelry professionals across the U.S. have responded on social media.


Donations are needed for on-the-ground programs for both displaced and in-country Ukrainians, and several jewelry and gem industry players are helping with those efforts via auctions, direct donations and awareness. Even more are posting messages of solidarity with Ukrainiansm, using the #standwithukraine hashtag in posts about the conflict.


Here’s what they’re saying and doing:
