316L stainless steel forms the base of all our pieces because we like to start strong. It’s a durable metal in every sense - strength, chemical resistance, and long lastingness. So trustworthy, it’s used to build ships and skyscrapers.
We plate our gold and rose gold pieces in titanium nitride (tinite), an even stronger ceramic. Tinite is strong enough on its own, but when we plate it to our steel the way we do using advanced vacuum processes, our pieces become fool proof. (Tinite is so hard and heat resistant that it’s used to plate high-speed drills to make them last longer.)
We’d be sorry to create jewelry that causes skin reactions in this day and age. The metals we work with are proven to be 100% hypoallergenic, and are relied on in the medical field for surgical tools and implants.
Process and Manufacturing
Love of Design.
We think that everything covetable comes designed. That’s why we approach all of our jewelry with a hands-on approach: from moodboard, to hand sketch, to CAD rendering. With an engineering approach to design and function, our final products look unique and wear comfortably.
Love of Manufacturing.
Our founding team studied overseas manufacturing years, familiarizing themselves with materials, the manufacturing pipeline, quality control, and communication. We’ve worked with our factories for four years, and view manufacturing as a challenge and art form. We’re committed to doing the best job possible so everyone has access to high quality products.
Sustainable Stainless Steel
Stainless steel is the most recycled metal on the planet. More than 85% of it will eventually be reused, and unlike other metals, steel retains morethan 90% of its strength after being melt down and recycled.
Our Lilac cakeboxes are hand crafted from recycled paper and our No Excess envelopes are made of cellulose-based paper. Any foam that we use is made from reused foam. All postcards and print collateral is printed on recycled paper.
Recycle With Us (coming soon)
We’re committed to sustainable metals and practices. We believe in quality over quantity and responsible recycling. Learn more about our metal recycling efforts and how you can request a free, prepaid metal recycling kit for old, unwanted jewelry here.
