April 20, 2012 – Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry and Ghost The Musical collaborate to commemorate Broadway’s most anticipated new musical with a limited edition collection of “Believe” rings that will benefit Stand Up To Cancer. Adapted from the Academy Award-winning film starring the late Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore, the musical is a tragic love story with a paranormal twist.
Cast with some of Broadway’s biggest stars (Richard Fleeshman as Sam Wheat, Caissie Levy as Molly Jensen and Da’Vine Joy Randolph as Oda Mae Brown), written by rock legends Dave Stewart and Glen Ballard and directed by Tony Award winner Matthew Warchus, this highly acclaimed new musical began previews at Broadway’s Lunt-Fontanne Theatre on March 15th. The scheduled premiere on April 23rd, 2012 is expected to draw an all-star celebrity attendance, including fine jewelry designer and businesswoman Ivanka Trump.
The rousing story of love inspired Ivanka Trump to dedicate one of her signature pieces to honor the spirit of the new musical. “I loved the movie Ghost in my childhood and I am very excited to see it adapted for Broadway. In keeping with the story line the design of the “Believe” ring features an interlocking pattern reminiscent of the infinity symbol, which symbolizes the power of everlasting and eternal love between Sam and Molly.” says Ivanka.
From her Signature Oval collection, the limited edition “Believe” rings retail for $725, are set in 18k white gold, and available with either black, white, or coral enamel. Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry will donate to Stand Up To Cancer fifty percent of the purchase price from the sale of each ring sold from April 20, 2012 through July 31, 2012. (Promotion is not valid in Alabama, Hawaii, Maine, Massachusetts, Mississippi and South Carolina.)
