We believe that every woman deserves jewelry that lives up to her high standards. She sets the gold bar, we simply strive to meet it.
All our gold begins as pencil. We start by sketching the details of everyday, rather Sophie does, then we add in a little shine. Drawing from her many muses across NYC — rings modeled after the arches of the Brooklyn Bridge, earrings inspired by doorknobs, and the never-ending movement of the city — Sophie's design inspiration knows no bounds.
Each piece is designed and made to raise the standards of ethics, quality, and style. Balancing refined femininity with modern attitude, our jewelry is made for real life, no occasion necessary.
Brought to you with transparent pricing
All our gold is born and raised in NYC and refined by seventh generation craftsmen. So you avoid the markups and middlemen.
Made to give back
It's our mission to give as much as we get. In partnership with Mastery Charter, we support developing literacy and imagination by donating a book for each piece of gold purchased to children in need across U.S. schools.
It wasn't contemporary, affordable fine jewelry that brought Sophie Kahn and Bouchra Ezzahraoui - longtime friends from grad school - together to start Aurate in 2015, rather it was the absence of it. Hailing from the Netherlands and Morocco respectively, the two combined Sophie's background in fashion and Bouchra's experience in finance to team up and shift the fine jewelry market.
