- ARE THE METALS YOU USE ECO-FRIENDLY?
Our jewelry is crafted from solid precious metals to assure their durability and recyclability. We re-use the waste materials of our design and production processes. All of the raw precious metals we use are made from recycled material, purchased from green certified refineries that meet the highest standards for ethical sourcing and minimal environmental impact. We also recycle all of our scraps generated in the development and production process of our jewelry.
2. WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR GEMSTONES FROM?
All of our stones are conflict-free, from sources that adhere to the Kimberley Process. When we wear recycled materials we honor our own power to adapt, reinvent and flourish. It also reduces our carbon footprint. And by using gems sourced from Kimberly-certified distributors, we support an honest day’s work.
We also use lab-created stones for some of our colored gemstones to further reduce the impact of mining rare natural gems out of the ground. They are visually and chemically the exactly the same as mined stones, but do not contribute to the land destruction and resource depletion in the way that naturally-mined stones do.
3. WHERE ARE YOUR PRODUCTS MADE?
Creating our jewelry in the USA in-house and with small independent over-sea producers is an incredibly important aspect of our philosophy. It not only allows us to work closely with the artisans fabricating the jewelry, but it also enables us to deliver handmade pieces to order - keeping a close eye on quality. More importantly, as an American company, we want to support other creatives, namely other jewelers, stone setters, casters, CAD artists, and US-based suppliers to the industry. Our jewelry requires precision in fabrication, and that means skilled work from talented individuals. A history of quality craftsmanship is part of the American tradition and has in recent history been in danger of being lost forever in various industries. Even though we’re small, we’re a company creating new products and we want to be part of supporting the revival of that tradition as well as supporting other small businesses.
4. WHAT IS YOUR DESIGN APPROACH & PHILOSOPHY?
We’re grounded in a belief that magnificence lies in elegance. Pursuing sophistication in the unexpected, we create thoughtfully designed pieces that are unique, yet crafted to be versatile and cherished for years. With aesthetic influences hailing from mid-century architecture and ancient goldsmithing to minimalist art and sculpture, our entire collection explores the marriage of daring dichotomies—earthy and modern, streamlined and textured, restrained and sexy, delicate and strong.
