Our Gold Standard
We Create Heirloom-Quality Jewelry That Endures.
Our Jewelry, made to last, is created to be passed down through the generations. By designing and crafting our pieces to endure, we avoid the harmful culture of disposable fashion.
We Make Our Pieces By Hand, Not Machine.
No mass production, no machine-driven factory lines. By producing by hand in our NY and certified production partner’s studio, we provide job opportunities for trained artisans.
We Protect Our Planet.
Our NY production, packaging, and shipping follow the Zero-Waste philosophy. We reduce, reuse, and recycle wherever possible.
We Give Back to Our Communities.
In 2022, we donated $29,370 to charities that we're passionate about. We focus on the following areas of giving:
- Hunger in our communities
- Social Justice
