Ivanka Trump, the daughter of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, received a curt rebuke on Instagram from a famed jeweler after she placed an order for some new swanky swag.
The Lady Grey jewelry company was commissioned by Ivanka Trump to make a custom-made ear-cuff, which just screams “I am part of the proletariat, and just like you. Except I wear extremely expensive ear cuffs. By the way, I am married to a billionaire.” The designers of Lady Grey jewelry, Jill Martinelli and Sabine Le Guyader, decided to make a political statement after they received Ivanka’s order. They posted the following note to their Instagram account with the hashtag #thanksbutnothanks:
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 Gray #helixearcuff.
Jill + Sabine
After the post began to go viral the two made their Instagram private, but it is now public once again for the public to see. In an interview with New York Magazine’s, “The Cut” Martinelli relayed in an email, “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.”
