Say what you will about celebrity designers, but Nicole Richie has shown that she’s no slouch in the style department, and she’s got the companies to prove it. There’s her clothing line, Winter Kate, her Nicole Richie Collection for QVC, and House of Harlow 1960, her accessories collection beloved by fashion editors and Richie fans alike.

But this designer isn’t just basking in her success: she’s giving back. This year for Mother’s Day, Richie has created a very special House of Harlow 1960 necklace what will benefit Baby2Baby, an L.A.-based charity that supplies needy families with baby clothing and supplies.

“We take the basic necessities for granted, but for many families, it's a serious struggle,” said Richie in a statement. “This is one way to ease the financial burden, and help new babies have a good start in life.”

Richie recreated one of the line’s classic necklaces with vibrant green resin set in 14 karat yellow gold-plated metal. The necklace will be available for $75 at and starting April 16, with 20 percent of the proceeds going to Baby2Baby.
