Are you looking for a simple design or a jewelry staple in ethical materials you’ll feel great about wearing or gifting?
Jewelry staples might include:
everyday diamond studs
a simple solitaire
classic gold bangles
These are the type of pieces you reach for daily, and you want them to reflect your values.
Even though these classic styles are available from many jewelers - it can be hard to find them made with responsibly sourced materials.
We call these “Ethical Basics” - classic jewelry designs made to order in our studio using Fairmined Certified gold, post-consumer recycled diamonds, and responsibly sourced colored gemstones.
Ethical Basics FAQs
Do you stock Ethical Basics? We make these pieces to order, because as a small business it doesn’t make sense for us to invest our resources in creating a back stock. This also allows us to be nimble in modifying designs to our clients preferred specifications as needed. How are Ethical Basics different from Bespoke Projects?
This category truly covers the basics, and doesn’t require the same level of design work as a Bespoke project. These pieces require a minimal amount of design input because they exist as jewelry standards. Bespoke Projects start at $5,000, whereas we do not have a set minimum cost for Ethical Basics. After a short conversation, we will provide a quote for an Ethical Basic piece, based on the cost of materials and the amount of labor involved in production.
