In honor of Vincent Van Gogh's philanthropic legacy, a portion of the proceeds of our diamond jewelry will be donated to charities that uplift and empower the African communities where diamonds are mined. All of the African diamonds used in our jewelry creations are certified Non-Conflict Diamonds
As the Leonardo DiCaprio film "Blood Diamond" portrayed, Sierra Leone has a long history of providing the luxurious diamonds worn by brides around the world.
Meanwhile, schools in Sierra Leone lack the basic educational tools for children to succeed. Items that many of us take for granted like paper, pencils, desks, chairs and books are missing from these impoverished classrooms.
Furthermore, destitute parents lack the financial resources to pay the small fees for their children to attend the local school.
Consequently, these intelligent children lose the life changing opportunity for upward mobility that education provides. Without intervention, the cycle of poverty continues.
Charities such as Develop Africa aim to stop this cycle. VinScent limited is committed to raising awareness of these much needed philanthropic organisations. A portion of the proceeds from our jewelry sales is donated to support these African charities.
Few people know that Van Gogh spent time as a Christian missionary caring for coal miners in the Belgian mines. He gave his heart and soul to his ministry work and truly was a voice for the voiceless.
Vincent gave away all of his possessions and lived among the miners. He even went down into the dark and dangerous mines to truly understand their plight.
Sadly, his superiors did not approve of his method of 'becoming one' with the oppressed workers and Vincent was unjustly fired. Devasted, and seeking a higher purpose in his life, Van Gogh decided to become an artist.
