Transitioning to Only Fine Jewelry
Originally published on April 19, 2019
THE FUTURE IS FINE
Fine jewelry, that is. We've transitioned the entire shop to focus solely on precious metals and diamonds. Our reasons are firmly rooted in the belief that fashion can no longer be a throw-away industry. Money speaks louder than words, so let's join forces in the revolution.
We're happy to be closing the book on demi-fine jewelry. For us, offering only fine jewelry is less about status and more about fully embracing the minimalist lifestyle, simplifying our production process and minimizing waste. We believe sustainability is a social pact with future generations.
ALL THAT GLITTERS IS RECYCLED GOLD AND SILVER
We prioritize using recycled precious metals by purchasing our production materials from trusted vendors based in the USA that are SCS Global Services certified for recycled precious metals. We're proud to say that over 75% of our metal stock originates from above ground sources. Our goal is to get to 100%, but as a micro-business we're still navigating the sustainable jewelry supply chain. Learn more about recycled metals in our FAQ: Materials & Production section.
ETHICALLY SOURCED DIAMONDS ARE A GIRLS BEST FRIEND
We only use eco-friendly and conflict-free stones. For us that means reclaimed and lab grown (yes, lab grown diamonds are real diamonds!). We refuse to use virgin mined stones when there are plenty of beautiful ones above ground. Learn more about ethical diamonds in our FAQ: Materials & Production section..
PACK IT UP, PACK IT IN, LET ME BE BIODEGRADABLE
It is important that our packaging reflects our mission to decrease our impact on the planet. We use kraft mailing envelopes, cardboard boxes, shipping labels, paper and jewelry boxes made from 100% recycled content. Inside the jewelry boxes you'll find linen instead of plastic-based padding. Irina personally sews each linen pouch herself. It makes for great storage at home and in your travels!
As consumers we have so much power to change
the world by just being careful in what we buy.
