HSN Cares supports the Alzheimer’s Association through jewelry collection inspired by Rita Hayworth
HSN Cares, the philanthropic arm of HSNi dedicated to empowering women and helping families in times of need, is supporting the Alzheimer’s Association with a special collection of gemstone jewelry curated with Colleen Lopez. With a nod to Hollywood glamour, the collection features fine gemstone jewelry including several emerald pieces — Rita Hayworth’s favorite gemstone. The jewelry collection will be featured on HSN TV on Saturday, Oct. 22, from 7-9 p.m. ET and on hsn.com. The segment will also share facts about Alzheimer’s disease. HSN will donate 10 percent of the price of the jewelry sold during the segment and online, and customers will also be able to add a donation at checkout.
