HOW OUR JEWELRY IS MADE

Each masterpiece birthed within our atelier commences as a humble copper or sterling silver prototype, meticulously honed to perfection to ascertain proportions and precision. Once the alchemy of creation unfolds flawlessly, our artisans meticulously fashion each piece using 18kt Fairmined Ecological gold, ensuring not just beauty, but ethical integrity.

A symphony of skills harmonizes in our workshop, each artisan contributing their expertise to sculpt perfection, down to the minutest fraction of a millimeter. All the materials used in our trials, find purpose anew, as they're smelted down to be used again in future designs.

the final step: polishing

After the completion of the final Ecological gold model, the stage is set for the process of finishing and polishing. Tasked with a critical role, the polisher holds the fate of the entire piece in their hands; one misstep could jeopardize all previous efforts.

Polishing entails an intricate procedure, demanding a series of actions including filing, sanding, and buffing across multiple stages. Only through this process can the desired superlative shine and luster be achieved, elevating each piece to its zenith of sparkle and shine.

There is a high level of skill required to become a master jeweler that is only honed after many decades in the industry. Making jewelry is an intense labor of love, one that finds many without them looking. It's an art form that is slowly being replaced with 3-D modeling, yet some jewelry cannot be made on a computer. There will always be a need for human hands to finish and polish the final product as well.

The human touch is a subtle feeling that gives a piece of jewelry more soul. You can certainly feel the love when you put on a piece that is crafted by hand. Discover 18kt Fairmined Ecological gold jewelry, handcrafted in NYC by the masters.
