Jewellery with purpose
The Kimberley bracelet
in support of the Garvan Institute
of Medical Research
Inspired by the rugged beauty of Australia’s north-west, the stunning Kimberley Bracelet features sandalwood and hand-selected Paspaley pearls, unique to the Kimberley – the birthplace of the rarest and most valuable pearls in the world.
20% of the proceeds from each bracelet is donated to Garvan, with our customers selecting which type of cancer research they wish to support.
Since it was launched in 2016, sales of our Kimberley Bracelet have raised over $1M for the Garvan Institute of Medical Research, with thousands of people around the world wearing it with pride.
This has made a meaningful difference to the lives of thousands of people.
Cancer research at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research
1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Cancer is a genetic disease: its root cause is changes in the DNA sequence and the way that DNA is packaged in our cells.
Our cancer researchers study rare and less common cancers, and cancers that run in families like the many forms of sarcoma, cancers that spread very quickly like pancreatic cancer, and common cancers that still resist treatment or come back including breast, lung, bowel and prostate cancer.
We work at the intersection of immunity and cancer disciplines. We have numerous clinical trials in progress to ensure our discoveries can directly benefit patients.
