Ethical solid gold from conflict-free suppliers

We only use real, solid 14K and 18K gold, sourced from verified conflict-free suppliers. The number of karats tells you how many 24ths of the total piece is pure gold (so 18 karats is 18/24 parts, or 75%, pure gold).

Our vermeil is made of 14K gold with a thickness of over 2.5 microns when officially, vermeil requires at least 10K gold with a thickness of 1.5 microns — v fancy.

Give a book to a
child who needs it

With your purchase, you're putting this book directly in the hands of a child who needs it: The Skin I'm In - Flake.

One in four American children grows up without learning how to read adequately - we want to change that, one book at a time.

Emulating the 4mm Akoya pearl it sits across from, a sphere of gleaming gold just manages to pip it for size in a teasingly asymmetric design. Worn alone or in combination, our Asymmetric Pearl Ring garners attention with its playful approach to form and material, upending expectations of two elements as timeless as gold and pearl.

Pro tips for measuring

MEASURE END OF DAY

Fingers tend to swell throughout the day, so it's better to measure in the evening.

THICK BANDS FEEL TIGHT

Beware that thicker rings feel tighter than thinner ones. You may want to choose a size up for thicker bands.

WARM HANDS

Who likes cold hands? Not us, since the cold can shrink your fingers (and therefore your hard-earned measurements)
