As Our Lady of Perpetual Shade Beyoncé once said, “Stay gracious, best revenge is your paper.” That seems to be what boutique jewelry company Lady Grey hand in mind yesterday, when it posted on Instagram the gracious note it included in a recent order made by Ivanka Trump. It read that “proceeds of your sale have been generously donated to” various immigration and gun safety charities—and Hillary Clinton’s campaign.


Lady Grey said in a statement to the Daily Dot, “When we received her order, we instantly felt compelled to take the money and donate it to a few organizations that were more aligned with our ideals—Everytown for Gun Safety, the American Immigration Council, and the Hillary Clinton Campaign. We strongly feel that everyone and anyone can make a difference through actively supporting the causes that they believe in, no matter how big or small. We decided to share this letter to make that statement, and hopefully inspire people to follow suit.”

Of course, there are the haters in the comments, calling the stunt unprofessional, and arguing that Trump shouldn’t be punished because her father is running for president. Then again, she did speak at the RNC.

In the letter, the company notes Trump ordered a “helix cuff,” which ranges from $84 to $108. They also have yet to hear back from Trump. We’re sure she’ll respond after she gets back from her vacation with Wendi Deng.
