Jewels for a cause

Have you ever heard of the Noonday Collection?  Until last week, I hadn't either.  I heard of it through, a great food blog that I've been reading for years. 
The blogger just became an "ambassador" for the brand, and I just became a customer.  I bought this beautiful necklace.
I just received it in the mail and it is even more striking in person.  I love the contrast of the bright blue thread against the gold beads.
I also love shopping when you can justify it by helping people.  All the jewelry from Noonday Collection is fair trade and is made by struggling artisans, providing them with a path out of poverty. 
The "ambassadors" also make money so it's not a 100% donation to the artisans.  But it's still charitable shopping as far as I'm concerned.
I also really want this:
Ancient Ways Necklace (*Backordered*)
and this:
Bone Carved Polygon Necklace
But I have to pace myself.  All in the name of charity and my neck.
