We buy recycled metals from a United States manufacturer. Plus we recycle metals within our own studio. Our Kimberly certified conflict-free diamonds come from a family-owned business. We buy rough colored stones from miners all over the world. We seek out artisan miners with direct connections to the mine.
Mixed Metal Patina
Yes, our jewelry starts out dark and then brightens over time. The darkened silver on our mixed metal bands will brighten with wear. The darkness will hold in areas of the band that have tool marks. Over time the band will develop its own patina/unique texture. Upon request, we will provide our Anti-Polish for you to re-darken the silver to return it to its original look but the same brightening process will occur with wear.

We've heard our work described as raw gemstone jewelry. We always start with rough gemstones but we cut and polish each stone in a minimalist fashion. We look for natural formations, inclusions, and textures to expose the essential character and beauty of each stone. While we appreciate the allure of a brilliant precious gem, we’ve expanded our selection to include stones that are rarely seen in fine jewelry.
