Thinking about the health crisis caused by the Covid-19 virus pandemic, designer Ana Khouri created a one-of-a-kind special edition of her Mirian ring made with blue sapphires and reverted 100% of the proceeds to Doctors Without Borders, a non-governmental organization known for putting volunteers on the front lines of the world’s most dangerous wars, disease outbreaks, and natural disasters.
"I am deeply concerned about the lack of vital equipment and supplies in the medical community during this period. I felt the urge and duty to help, even if in a humble way, by supporting the brave men and women on the front lines who were fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. I’m so in awe of the fashion community stepping in to help produce masks, hand sanitizer and gowns (among many other initiatives) to help healthcare workers all over the world. The best way to help is through my jewelry, ”explained the designer on her Instagram account.
“I chose blue sapphires for this piece as blue in many cultures is associated with hope, peace and protection. I hope my donation will help Doctors Without Borders to ensure that healthcare workers have the critical supplies they need “concludes Khouri.
