Each handmade-in-L.A. Elephant Heart charm gives back to its community year-round, particularly in programs to assist children and veterans. Most recently, the line partnered up with the L.A. Department of Children and Family Services Juvenile Court Shelter Care Program to start the Holiday Book Project, which provides children with two new books to bring home from its “library.” For every order, from December 1st through December 31st, Elephant Heart will donate one book per order to the cause.

The charms in the Elephant Heart Charm Collection include a variety of animals chosen for their noble characteristics (elephants symbolize peace, Labradors for loyalty, dolphins mean harmony and so on). You can add a birthstone charm for an even more personal touch. Wear it by itself or layer it with other necklaces — there is no wrong way to accessorize it. Did we also mention that through December 23, you get 20% off your order by entering our exclusive code (found here) at checkout?
