The ring is our favorite symbol of unity. Unfortunately, the very values that bring us together – passion, creativity, and honesty – are often missing from jewelry making. Disingenuous practices and antiquated norms too often limit a ring's full potential for meaning. It is only by the brave collaboration of mindful artists and their patrons that we will genuinely experience the spirit of wholeness the ring can signify.
So let's forge a new ring, free of the artifice and crimes that raise a barrier of irrelevance between our heads and our hearts. Let's strive for symbols that reflect our hopes in a fusion of art, ethics, and self-awareness, and which remind us that, today, choosing love is an act of rebellion.
– Derrick Cruz, Founder, New York City
Our New York City craftspeople are genuine masters. With over four decades of devoted experience, they've created fine jewelry for royals as well as for some of the most respected luxury houses in the world. Now, their unique skills are at your service.
Most retailers mark up jewelry 8 to 10 times the cost of manufacturing. Our jewelry is handcrafted with the same care and quality as the finest luxury brands, but we’re able to eschew traditional markups by selling directly to our customers.
We believe that the integrity with which we treat our customers, collaborators and our environment enriches the significance of our rings. That’s why we procure all of our metals and gems exclusively from manufacturers that have formal sustainability programs and pay top wages to our artisans. Our platinum and gold are recycled and re-refined with no degradation in quality, and our Diamond Foundry U.S. grown diamonds are certified of exacting quality and aesthetics.
