The new mama is collaborating with jeweler Marina B for a good cause

After welcoming her daughter Wyatt Isabelle Kutcher with fiance Ashton Kutcher earlier this month, Mila Kunis is feeling inspired by her new role as a mother.

The actress has co-designed a "motherhood ring" with jeweler Marina B that will help benefit the Gemfields Nkana Health Center in Zambia, near the Gemfields mine. The limited-edition 18-karat yellow-gold emerald ring is available for $4,800, with one hundred percent of profits from the sale supporting the maternity center.

"Carrying a child and bringing new life into the world marks the start of an incredible journey," says Kunis, a Gemfields global brand ambassador, in a video about the collaboration. "Throughout history, every culture has its own way of recognizing this extraordinary event, often with a gift for mother or child. Precious green emeralds are traditionally symbols of motherhood, wisdom and long-lasting love. But they are also a symbol for hope in many cultures."

In July, the actress told W Magazine that she planned on being a "full-time mom" after giving birth — for a year, at least. “I have never wanted to be the person who only has business on her mind. To me, this job has always been a hobby that turned into a great profession, but I don’t eat and breathe acting,” she said. “I'm sure Meryl Streep has a very different point of view. But I’m excited about being a full-time mom."

Supporters of the cause can start making reservations for the Mila ring here.
