Alex and Ani isn’t the only local jewelry company that gives back to charity. Several local designers have organized shopping events this season that will donate a portion of sales to local non-profits.

What to Buy: Unusual pendants, cuffs and baubles that feature deities, antique lace, raw stones and objects with past lives repurposed into jewelry. If you’re the kind of woman who thrives on compliments about your one-of-a-kind finds, then Jessica Ricci’s designs are for you.
Who it will Help: 15 percent of sales from tonight's event will be donated to Girls on the Run Rhode Island, a nonprofit organization that offers youth development programs for young girls in the third through eighth grades. The program includes a curriculum that integrates running while inspiring girls to be healthy and confident.
