What is Pearls With Purpose?

Pearls with Purpose is a social impact organization promoting self reliance through micro-enterprise in Philippines, India and Cambodia.

Every purchase of genuine pearl jewelry gives our jewelry makers greater independence and purpose and enables them to provide food and education for their children.

We invite you to partner with us through our AccessoRISE and Pearl Pledge programs.
