While we don’t work with certain metals or stones ourselves, we’ve partnered with a great supplier/manufacturer in the USA, that can help us get you the ring you’ve been dreaming of. While some styles (like the alternative metals) cannot be customized, a lot of products can be. We can work with you and our supplier to design, find, or customize your perfect piece. Our supplier can also work with your own stones if you have precious stones you’d like to incorporate into your design.

Just a small list of the items we can source/help create for you:

  • Alternative Metal Bands (Tungsten, Titanium, Stainless Steel, Cobalt, Ceramic and more)
  • Ethically sourced Diamond Rings and Bands
  • Ethically sourced Gemstone Rings and Bands
  • Platinum or Palladium Styles
  • Other Jewelry (necklaces, pendants, earrings, cuff links, and more!)

Our supplier is dedicated to Earth First practices that give us confidence that we can find you the ring, or jewelry piece, you’ve been dreaming of for a great price in an ethical way!

None of the woods we use are listed in the CITES appendices as being threatened or endangered. Macassar Ebony is listed on the IUCN Red List as being vulnerable due to a decline in it’s natural range. 

We source most of our woods from craftspeople and artisans with pieces too small for their own use. In this way we feel we can create beautiful rings without contributing to their decline.
