Celebrity Designer ElyseRyan, whose jewelry adorns the likes of Katie Couric, Diane Lane, Catherine Zeta Jones, Jessica Simpson, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olson, has created a unique JDRF jewelry collection. Notably, her ElyseRyan jewelry line has been featured at Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdales, and select jewelers throughout the country. She credits her inspiration for the JDRF collection to the strength and courage demonstrated by her daughters’ childhood friend, diagnosed with T1D at age 4, and the mother’s passion to increase awareness. She designed the JDRF jewelry collection with aspirations of utilizing her talents to promote the need for diabetes research to find a cure.

Crafted from sterling silver and Swarovski crystal, the jewelry can be purchased directly online at www.elyseryan.com/jewelry_jdrf.shtml. The collection includes designs for both teens and adults. Each piece of jewelry purchased is sent with a signature card in a designer ElyseRyan pouch.

Elyse has drawn on her success to give back, and JDRF is fortunate that she has selected our charity as one to which she is willing to lend her name, time and talent. 10% of the retail price from the JDRF jewelry collection sold will go directly to JDRF.

In a world filled with popular designer jewelry and clothing, it’s great to have a designer line for teens at reasonable prices to spread awareness and support diabetes research.

Stunning is the Word: Perfect for a Woman of Any Age
