As supposed expression of love, jewelry should be free from violence, exploitation, and environmental concerns. At every point of the supply chain, materials with questionable histories end up in global trade. The ‘Same Sun, Same Moon’ collection is a reminder that all people on earth are intrinsically connected and our choices here can have negative consequences on people and the countries that export our materials. Alternately, through thoughtful and ethical design, our choice can have positive impact – by using recycled, reclaimed and Fair Trade materials and donating to organizations that aid at-risk communities around the world. We gladly choose the latter option.

Each Fool’s Gold jewelry piece is meticulously handmade.
