Ivanka Trump ordered jewelry from a retailer that doesn't like her dad and it seriously backfired

She ordered earrings, but she got shade, too.

Ivanka Trump wanted earrings, but she got major shade instead. 

On Wednesday August 17, Lady Grey Jewelry owners Jill Martinelli and Sabine Le Guyader shared a photo of a letter they wrote to a customer on Instagram. That customer just happened to be Ivanka Trump.

Trump ordered a pair of cuff earrings, and while they were glad to get her as a customer, Martinelli and Le Guyader decided to donate the money from her order to the American Immigration Council,gun safety group Everytown for Gun Safety, and (get ready for the burn) Hillary Clinton.

Damn.

The designers told The Cut that they don't align with her father's views, which she supports. So, they wrote her a letter informing her of their donations.

The note, which they really did include in her package before shipping last week, reads in full:

"Dear Ivanka, Thank you for your web order! We're happy to let you know that the proceeds of your sale have been generously donated to the American Immigration Council, the Everytown for Gun Safety Organization, and the Hillary Clinton campaign. We hope you enjoy your new Lady Grey #helixcuff. Best, Sabine and Jill."

While many applaud the move, others in the comments called it "unprofessional."

That doesn't seem to bother Lady Grey, though. 

"Our social and political views couldn't be further from those of the Trump campaign," Martinelli told The Cut. 

We doubt we'll see Ivanka wearing their bling anytime soon.

That is stupid on their behalf. Msaybe they think more people will order their jewelry because of their stunt. I know I wouldn't.

If Ivanka had worn her ear rings out in public, they would have sold a lot more. I bet Ivanka is laughing and I don't blame her, like she needed those cheap ear rings. LOL

They can do what they like with the proceeds, but the letter is unprofessional.

You think so? I don't really keep up on what the Trumps are wearing. I think this gets them a lot more publicity and a lot of support.

What?

No one NEEDS any earrings. Ivanka ORDERED them because she liked them.

I personally think it's not nice to sell things to people and treat them badly for doing so, but maybe these jewelers got the Trump memo that there is no bad publicity, only increased name recognition, which is invaluable.

I guess not everything that sparkles is real gold when Ivanka wears jewelry, since she chose items you deem "cheap".
