Neiman Marcus Has Dropped Ivanka Trump Jewelry

| by Sarah Zimmerman

Luxury department store Neiman Marcus has dropped the Ivanka Trump jewelry line, with all products mysteriously disappearing from its website.

Approximately 21 products from Trump's jewelry collection were for sale on Neiman Marcus's website, according to Racked. Among the products was a $12,000 diamond bracelet. 

Customers noted that the entire line disappeared from the site in the early morning of Feb. 3. A sale associate from the Garden State Plaza location confirms that the collection has been pulled from its store, but cannot confirm if that is the case for all Neiman Marcus locations.

According to Business Insider, Neiman Marcus isn't the first store to cut its ties with the first daughter. A protest movement called #GrabYourWallet is encouraging protestors to boycott all businesses that have any ties to the Trump family. The movement keeps a growing spreadsheet of all companies with ties to the Trump brand and encourages consumers to boycott those stores. According to its website, the movement hopes that the poor sales from the boycott will incite companies to cut all associations with the Trumps.

The phrase "Grab Your Wallet," refers to a leaked Access Hollywood tape from 2005 that features President Donald Trump boasting about grabbing women's genitalia.

The site says that the hashtag is meant to be "a rejoinder to Donald Trump's infamous hot mic remark and a reference to women's epic consumer power ... the #GrabYourWallet boycott has grown into a movement and central resource for the flexing of consumer power in favor of a more respectful and inclusive society."  

The #GrabYourWallet movement has taken credit for the Feb. 2 news that Nordstrom would be dropping its association with Ivanka due to declining sales.

"Each year we cut about 10 percent [of brands carried] and refresh our assortment with about the same amount," said a Nordstrom representative to Business Insider. "In this case, based on the brand's performance we've decided not to buy it for this season."
