Every 65 seconds someone in the United States develops Alzheimer’s disease. The fight against that alarming statistic continues.

It all started with two friends supporting one another​ ​through the struggles of caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s…​We both remember the exact moment our parents were diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Struggling to find purpose, we turned to one another for support and purpose. We had to do something to connect to others and positively impact the Alzheimer’s community. Together, we founded Rivet Revolution, an Alzheimer’s-awareness jewelry business, in the summer of 2016. 

 Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia — a continuous decline in thinking, behavioral, and social skills that disrupts a person’s ability to function independently and causes brain cells to waste away (degenerate) and die. An estimated 5.8 million Americans of all ages are living with Alzheimer’s dementia in 2019, making it likely each of us will be directly or indirectly affected in our lifetime. 

Today, neither of us will rest until a cure is found. Not a day goes by that we don’t both worry about how this disease will impact our children. Rivet Revolution is both a social enterprise AND a charity project. Inspired by the strong and permanent bond of the rivet, our handcrafted jewelry includes a brilliant selection​ ​of gemstones and styles, designed to be collected and shared while contributing to the fight against Alzheimer’s. We donate 10% of every sale to charitable foundations, programs, and researchers focused on empowering people, raising awareness, making a difference, and finding a cure. 

Our hearts are with our loved ones that have lost their battle to Alzheimer’s and those that are still struggling. Thousands have joined the Rivet Revolution, wearing a Rivet Revolution bracelet and showing their support for the Alzheimer’s community. We hope that people are inspired to have fun with their bracelets, stack them, and curate a look that shows off each person’s unique personal style. We love that our customers reorder bracelets, telling us they are stacking to give others hope, or that they are giving gave away their bracelets to someone struggling with the impact of Alzheimer’s. 

We have raised more than $200K for Alzheimer’s, and we are honored to work with charity partners including Maria Shriver, Seth and Lauren Rogen, Braden Bishop, Mikey Hoag & Jay Allen. 

Every day is an opportunity to eliminate this dreadful disease. If we can make a small impact, if we can offer advice for those dreaming of making a difference…turn your hurt into something positive. Find a like-minded, fun risk taker who shares your passion, and go for it.
