Alex Woo’s love of collaborating with Disney and desire to help raise awareness for wildlife has culminated in yet another adorable piece of jewelry.
Just in time for Earth Day and the release of Disneynature’s new film, “Born in China,” the jewelry designer has debuted the “Activist Love Panda” pendant.
“Born in China,” narrated by actor John Krasinski, follows the adventures of three animal families--a panda and her baby, a family of golden monkeys, and a snow leopard and her two young cubs--and takes the audience through the terrain of China, from the mountains to the bamboo forests.
Woo said she designed Activist Love Panda to capture the essence of the film’s intimate story of family, featuring the mama bear and her bamboo stick in the shape of a heart. In addition, each bamboo leaf represents a member of one of the three families featured in the movie.
The pendant is priced at $158 in sterling silver and $798 in 14-karat gold.
Through Dec. 31, Woo will donate 20 percent of the retail price of each panda sold to the World Wildlife Fund’s global conservation efforts to protect species and habitats like those featured in the film.
Disneynature also will contribute 20 cents from every movie ticket sold during the film’s opening week (through April 27) to the WWF, with a minimum guaranteed donation of $100,000.
This is Woo’s fifth collaboration with Disneynature to create a charitable and symbolic pendant inspired by one of their films. In the past, she’s made jewelry for “Monkey Kingdom,” “Bears,” “Chimpanzee” and “African Cats.”
Kanye West’s Yeezy fashion brand has launched a new high-end jewelry line including $13,000 necklaces, as Vogue points out. The 18 karat, yellow gold chain pendant is one of several necklaces in the collection, which was made in collaboration with Jacob & Co.’s Jacob Arabo. Other pieces include rings (starting at $1,500) and bracelets, which cost $9,500. Many of the pieces feature religious iconography; Vogue reports the set was inspired by 14th-century Florentine art. “I wanted to create something that represented timeless love,” West told Vogue.

With a value of more than $60 million, the 59-carat Pink Star diamond is likely to break sales records when it hits the auction block at Sotheby’s April 4 jewelry sale in Hong Kong. The gem is the largest internally flawless fancy vivid pink diamond ever graded by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). Unearthed in Africa nearly 20 years ago by De Beers, the Pink Star was originally a colossal 132-carat rough diamond. It was carefully shaped into a dazzling, oval mixed-cut over the course of two years.
If the Pink Star sells this April, it will surely break the standing record for a pink diamond at auction; the Star is more than twice the size of the Graff Pink, which currently holds the record—it sold for $46.2 million in 2010 through Sotheby’s Geneva. Given the rarity and subsequent value of colored diamonds, experts anticipate that gems like the Pink Star and Graff Pink will continue to attract collectors and gem-lovers around the world.
