Ivanka Trump Tries to Order an Ear Cuff, Gets Owned Pretty Hard

Lady Grey Jewelry, an indie brand with a woodsy, sculptural vibe which lists its celeb fans to include Beyoncé, Rihanna, Selena Gomez, and Grimes, apparently received an order for an $84 Helix Ear Cuff from one Ivanka Trump. Whether or not we believe that Ivanka would actually wear a gold plated ear cuff is beyond the point (she would not)—co-founders and designers Jill Martinelli and Sabine Le Guyader wrote her a fun lil’ note, seen above.

If human handwriting goes over your head these days, the note reads:

“Dear Ivanka, Thank you so much for your web order! We’re happy to let you know that the proceeds of your sale have been generously donated to the American Immigration Council, the Everytown for Gun Safety organization, and the Hillary Clinton campaign. We hope you enjoy your new Lady Grey #helixearcuff. Best, Jill + Sabine.”


When contacted by The Cut, Martinelli explained:

“The note was included in her package and shipped last week directly from our studio in Brooklyn. While we were flattered to receive an order from Ivanka Trump, our social and political views couldn’t be further from those of the Trump campaign. When we received her order, we instantly felt compelled to take the money and donate it to a few organizations that were more aligned with our ideals.”

Frankly, I’m still stuck on this ear cuff. Was it for Tiffany?

I’m a little surprised to be feeling so much “Nope” over this.

The donations are awesome.

Personally I like my last laughs to be private. They feel richer for the secrecy. Good deeds, too.
