Sustainable Jewelry: Ethical & Environmental

Our unique jewelry designs are crafted by hand. Each design is made to last so your precious pieces can worn and enjoyed for a lifetime and more. We create treasures that can one day to be passed down to future generations.

In order to minimize our impact on the environment, we only ever use high-quality 100% recycled sterling silver and gold in our workshop ♻️

By choosing recycled precious metals, we can all play a small part in reducing demand for mined ore. Mining metal ore not only damages plant life but also displaces wildlife.

All of our jewelry is made from pre-loved pieces and leftover silver and gold. These are melted down to create beautiful shiny new jewelry for you.

Our trusted gemstone supplier is fully certified by the non-for-profit Responsible Jewelry Council (RJC) and strictly operates under the Kimberly Process.  Our diamonds are ethically sourced from conflict free zones.

We also offer a wide variety of alternative gemstones including lab created diamonds. Contact us directly to explore your options.
