Guiding Principles

Cultural Preservation:  We believe a thriving society is dependent on the preservation of art, literature, history, science, and culture, and that museum stores play a vital role in the funding and support of their institutions. Through our partnerships with museums and cultural institutions, we actively engage specifically within this sector. To demonstrate our commitment, we are a Founding Sponsor of Museum Store Sunday. Additionally, we will work to advocate for the importance of museums and defend funding streams that support the important work of the cultural sector. 

Museum-Level Quality:  Our products are made to be cherished and handed down for generations. All of our jewelry is meticulously designed and crafted in the United States utilizing the world’s finest metals and gemstones, sourced from reputable, primarily domestic, suppliers. We work transparently to disclose our material gradings and their treatments. We educate both buyers and consumers on regulatory disclosure requirements for jewelry sold in the United States. 

Equal Opportunity:  We respect and empower all people, and strongly oppose discrimination based on age, gender, disability, race, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, or gender identity. We actively support opportunities for women through employment, sourcing, and vendor relationships.

Stewardship:  We revere our environment and want to protect it for future generations. We recognize that the jewelry industry has a harmful impact on the planet. To reduce this, we strive to incorporate responsible and sustainable business practices into our work. Therefore, we:

-source recycled paper and recycled cotton t-shirt paper products in some of our packaging;

-seek out and collect used bubble wrap and air packs for our shipping;

-recycle 100% of all scrap metals;

-utilize sterling silver in our castings that is a combination of recycled, re-refined and domestically mined materials.
