  • 20% of net proceeds from each Caliber San Francisco sale will fund gun buyback and amnesty programs in Pittsburg, CA
  • Caliber Collection proceeds have already funded two gun buyback programs in the U.S., taking 395 illegal guns off the street
  • The nonprofit Caliber Foundation aids people and communities victimized by illegal gun violence
  • Using jewelry as a fundraising tool, Jewelry For A Cause has raised over $450K for various causes
  • 100% brass (recycled bullet casings)
  • Made in the U.S.A.

About

Jewelry For A Cause

Jewelry For A Cause

The appeal of the Caliber Collection by Jewelry For A Cause is part mission, part metal. The bracelets were created to help fund gun buyback programs in cities across the U.S.–and the brass and steel used to make them was recycled from shell casings taken off America's streets. Literally, Jewelry For A Cause turns bullets into bangles, arms into arm parties.
