When Ivanka Trump made the online purchase of an $84 Helix Ear Cuff from Lady Grey Jewelry (an indie brand whose celeb clients include Beyoncé, Rihanna, Selena Gomez, and Grimes), co-founders and designers Jill Martinelli and Sabine Le Guyader couldn’t let it pass without injecting a little cheeky political commentary into the order.
“Dear Ivanka,” they wrote in a little note that was included in her package.
“Thank you so much for your web order! We’re happy to let you know that the proceeds of your sale have been generously donated to the American Immigration Council, the Everytown for Gun Safety organization, and the Hillary Clinton campaign. We hope you enjoy your new Lady Grey #helixearcuff. Best, Jill + Sabine.”
Martinelli later told The Cut:
“The note was included in her package and shipped last week directly from our studio in Brooklyn. While we were flattered to receive an order from Ivanka Trump, our social and political views couldn’t be further from those of the Trump campaign. When we received her order, we instantly felt compelled to take the money and donate it to a few organizations that were more aligned with our ideals.”
