Lang Gives Back
As part of a thriving and vibrant jewelry community, Lang believes in doing what communities do—giving back. We established the Antique Jewelry University (AJU) online in 2004 for the purpose of creating a repository for all things relating to jewelry history. Appraisers, teaching facilities, jewelers and lovers of jewelry from all over the world use this informative resource.
And thank you for partnering with us in giving back to our larger community. For every purchase that you make, Lang donates $15 to charitable organizations that help meet the most pressing needs. Although we add others as the need arises or during months designated for specific charitable awareness, below is a list of our general 2022 donation organizations.
