What is an eco-friendly engagement ring?

An eco-friendly engagement ring is one that is made using materials that ensure the environment is minimally impacted and miners, cutters, and jewelers have safe and fair working conditions. 

When shopping for an ethical engagement ring, the rush of excitement can often be short-lived and quickly replaced with the confusion and frustration of hunting down ethical yet appealing options. Settling should never be an option, but especially in terms of meaningful and longly anticipated engagement rings. For this very reason, we are proud and eager to announce our new custom and 100% sustainable engagement ring collection!
