The donations from Leibish could help to save the sight of children like Criscent from Uganda, who had surgery to remove his cataracts.

Diamond retailer Leibish & Co will donate a percentage of every purchase to Sightsavers, in time for a sparkling Valentine’s Day later this month.

The online retailer specialises in coloured diamonds and rare gemstones, and follows the industry standard to ensure all its diamonds are conflict-free and sourced ethically.

Leibish Director of Content Marketing Benji Margolese said: “Working in an industry that is so driven by the gift of sight, partnering with Sightsavers was a logical choice, especially once we realised that, for just a small cost, we can help dramatically improve the lives of so many people. We look forward to helping give many people a brighter future.”

Sightsavers Corporate Relationships Manager Ed Hennessy said: “We’re thrilled to have the support of Leibish & Co. By buying beautiful gems and jewellery, Leibish customers will also be helping Sightsavers to protect and restore sight, and improve the lives of people with disabilities in some of the world’s poorest countries.”
