The Pinky Pledge Initiative
Inspired by our own mentors, the Duet Pinky Ring was created to be a physical symbol of the support around you and your pinky promise to pay it forward.
50% of profits from our Duet Pinky Rings fund seed grants for startups around the world that promote the well-being and advancement of women. We want women to grow up knowing they have a worldwide network of support to follow their passions.
This is your invitation to join the Girl Gang.
"What a truly remarkable movement you've started. A quiet, powerful message in a time of so much noise. That is what resonated with me when I read about your rings."
"For me I wear the pinky ring as a kind of talisman and symbol of living and breathing my support of women and girls every day . . . WE know that wearing this ring means that I'm going to stand beside you if and whenever you need me."
"She and I just looked at one another's rings and just knew — we're part of the same movement."
"I graduated from medical school in 1985 when there were no women surgeons, so it was an adventure! [Your] company makes me hopeful that the day will come when we don't see gender, race, orientation as a factor in anything other than positives."
"The Ring Hollywood Insiders Are Wearing To Support Women's Rights: The design serves as a daily reminder of the pinky pledge taken to support women."
