It's rare that style and substance come together, but the 46664 Bangle
is both, by raising money for Nelson Mandela's various charities and creating employment in South Africa.
Nominated for his portrayal of Nelson Mandela, Oscar winner Morgan Freeman is said to never take off his Bespoke 46664 Bangle, which he will be sporting at this year's Academy Award ceremony, as will producer Lori McCreary.
Designed by Sabina Roemer, Freeman's platinum bangle is decorated with emeralds and black diamonds. McCreary's yellow gold bangle is a filigreed African Daisy design scattered with white diamonds.
Roemer, who designs all of McCreary's jewelry says, "When Lori told me she wanted something different for the Oscars I took the opportunity to contribute to a line of jewelery that does more than just adorn bodies. The Academy Awards red carpet is all about fashion, but I feel these bangles add a dimension of social awareness and responsibility to the affair."
Each bangle contains a unique serial number that can be used to register them online and in so doing, authenticate them and track who was has been employed through the program.
As a long time supporter of the bangle program, Freeman says, "The 'Invictus' Bespoke 46664 Bangle is a reminder that one person can indeed make a significant impact on the world."
Freeman will be auctioning off his bespoke bangle to benefit the 46664 Bangle Initiative. The
46664 Bangle ranges in price from $23.95 for the copper bangles, $229 for silver bangles to $5,900 for 18-carat gold and $6,400 for 24-carat gold, to $12,900 for platinum.
