Kate Spade Beaded Necklace
What: The Kate Spade Rwanda Collection

Who benefits: Through a partnership with Women for Women International, Kate Spade employs women in war-torn countries and provides training, fair wages and sustainable income in parts of the world where these opportunities rarely exist. Additionally, 25% of total sales from the Rwanda Collection bangle will be donated to Women for Women International.

Why you want it: The 5-piece Rwanda Collection from Kate Spade features bright, fun accessories that would be ideal for Spring. A beaded necklace and bracelet both come in multiple colors and would look great paired with Spring's little white dress (I'm partial to the yellow seed bead necklace pictured here). The collection is rounded out with a beachy raffia tote and inspirational bangles in gold and rose gold plated metal. The prices top out at $175 -- the whole line is quite reasonably priced.
