When two explosions, the second even more disastrous than the first, went off in the city of Beirut Tuesday evening, at least 137 people were killed and more than 3,000 injured. The blast had a force of a 3.5 magnitude earthquake and was even felt in Cyprus, more than 125 miles away. The devastation on the city has been immense (here's how you can support  (opens in new tab)the organizations doing life-saving work on the ground).

In an effort to help, Italian jewelry brand Repossi is launching a ring for which all proceeds will go to the Lebanese Red Cross, a nonprofit organization that was founded in 1945 and is led by volunteers. The rescue squad is working tirelessly to provide relief to victims and help the city's most vulnerable.

Interested in making a purchase that'll give back? The ring itself is a take on the brand's Berbere Chromatic style, but will have the engraving of the Lebanon cedar (above). This style, which retails around $3,250, is available now for pre-order only through sales@repossi.com.
