Sustainability Story

Our sustainability story starts with our product. Since day one, we've crafted our rings locally in NYC using recycled precious metals and ethical, lab-grown diamonds. We make each ring to order, meaning no wasteful excess inventory, and we offer a lifetime guarantee on every ring. Over the past four years, we've worked towards reducing our environmental impact in many facets of our business, from switching to 100% SCS-certified recycled gold to making sure all of our packaging is curbside recyclable. We're proud of the progress we've made, but we know there's more we can accomplish. We're excited to partner with Climate Neutral to both offset our carbon footprint and to help us work toward our broader sustainability goals.
