What material do you produce your jewelry in?
Our jewelry is carefully handcrafted in either 14k gold filled or 14k solid gold. Some pieces in the repurposed designer section are gold plated. Please read the description of each item for more information regarding the material of the product.
How is your jewelry ethically made?
Our jewelry is handcrafted by skilled artisans using only a high quality 14k gold filled or 14k solid gold. The jewelry is made out of recycled precious metals and is also ethically made in our family-owned factory in Mumbai, India. Over 80% of the skilled artisans are female and 100% of the office workers are also female, and the factory greatly emphasizes women empowerment. The skilled artisans are paid above minimum wage and are given paid days off including holidays. The wonderful artisans are also given worker's insurance. We believe this factory will help us in our goal to remove our carbon footprint overall. The 14k solid gold jewelry is ethically produced in our factory in the USA, following all USA guidelines to ethical worker conditions.
Choosing to work in only 14k gold filled and solid gold for our core collection is how we choose to remain sustainable. Purchasing jewelry made with cheap metals means an endless cycle of throwing jewelry away when it tarnishes, causing those materials to go to waste. We strongly believe in buying less, but higher quality pieces to remain sustainable over time. Our Earth is very important to us, and we are working to reduce our carbon footprint as much as we can.
