The Know: DEF Malachite Bracelet from Simmons Jewelry Co.

Dubbed the "green bracelet", this rough diamond-malachite bead combo represents the initiative of DEF: Diamond Empowerment Fund.  The bracelet was created by Russell Simmons for Simmons Jewelry Co. to help those African nations rich in diamonds improve their educational initiatives and to empower the people.

Why green? It is the color of Africa, representing the rich natural resources the continent carries.  

Such simplicity yet a great addition for my collection.  Kudos to this guy who wore it to the Adidas Do Over Portland last Sunday!
