Alethe Fatherley’s vision is to revolutionize the jewelry industry by recognizing people, especially those in rural Africa, as its “most precious resource.” Recognizing the dire need for clean water and better education, Ms. Fatherley, a certified gemologist, offers through participating jewelry retailers a sterling silver water pump necklace. The necklace symbolizes the work done by her Jewelers for Water organization, and how proceeds from its sales benefit clean water projects in rural Africa.
