Conscientiously Chosen

We’ve created our jewelry line to take the guesswork out of making conscientious jewelry choices. Each of our pieces is beautifully designed with ethically sourced materials so that you can shop our collections with ease and wear your jewelry proudly, knowing that it’s been crafted with conflict-free precious metals and gemstones.



Are the materials sourced ethically? Will the materials chosen last in the intended use? Can a similar design be made with alternatives that are more earth-friendly?


Is this design original in some way, does it bring something new to a popular style that is unlike anything else available? Does it represent the intended wearer?


Is the design wearable? Has beauty and/or style been put above form and function? If so, how do we modify it to meet both criteria and be enjoyable to wear?
