We're here to celebrate it with you. In honor of SCOTUS declaring that marriage is a fundamental right of all Americans, we're giving you a sneak peek at some of our newest rings from The Devoted Collection.
The way we demonstrate devotion is in our hands, and sometimes quite literally on our hands. The Devoted Collection, rooted in freedom of expression, seeks to remind us that we should be free, free to choose who, how, and what we honor. This collection of rings is created in collaboration with an inspiring range of New Yorkers, Artists, Muses, Influencers, and Equality Advocates. Whether you are designing something for yourself or a beloved, these rings embody love, consciousness and equality.
Introducing the first collaboration with Jean-Noel Soni of Top Notch Faceting. This ring features a 6.55CT Nigerian Tourmaline and a 22Kraw alluvial gold nugget debuting at Rant + Statler.

"[Dignity is] the moment you live your dreams, not because of what it will prove or get you, but because that is all you want to do. People’s opinions don’t matter. "
- Shannon L. Alder
Caitlyn Jenner is a brave and beautiful inspiration to us all. She is a shining reminder that we are all free, free to choose who we are and how we live our lives. We are lucky to live in an age where people are celebrated for being true to themselves, there is always progress to be made.
Caitlyn helps us remember that devotion - true love - to one's self is just as important as devotion to a person, society, or a cause, and we applaud her for choosing to share her story with the world. As Howard Thurman once said, "Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."

My mama Always said...
a double standing ovation was inspired by Sarah Kay's spoken word TED Talk bringing with the following line...
If I should have a daughter, instead of "Mom," she's going to call me "Point B," because that way she knows that no matter what happens, at least she can always find her way to me.
Mother's Day is quickly approaching and my mind is aflutter with all the wonderful memories I share with my mom. Normally I'm not one for buying Hallmark gifts, but I can never seem to let this one go without expressing my love. After 30 something years, how do you continue to make it personal?
We're in the studio just wrapping up the development of The Devoted Collection, a line dedicated to the celebration of all kinds of love. What better way to shower mama with gratitude and appreciation for the life we share than a custom token of just that...here.
With all my love to moms EVERYWHERE,
