Shopping ethically can be a challenge. Sometimes, I find the selection to be out of my price point and not quite my taste. Luckily, if you dig through the internet enough, you will find the hidden ethically produced gems! Recently, I stumbled across a few new jewelry brands, so I thought it was only right to share them along with a few old favorites.
I’ve been wearing Mr. Kate pieces for three years. They offer unique and playful jewelry made in Los Angeles. The necklaces and rings above (with the exception of the turquoise one) are all by Mr. Kate. They’ve worn beautifully and look as great as the day I received them.
Be sure to get on their email list, so you’ll be notified of their great sales and when new collections debut!

Gaia employs refugee women and helps them rebuild their lives in the states. Couple their wonderful purpose with the sweetest handmade accessories and you have a brand close to my heart! I don’t own anything from them, but I hope to very soon. To learn more about the brand and read the women’s stories, check out their blog.

This is a very recent discovery, but I fell in love quickly. Fair Anita sells fair trade jewelry handmade by women in 16 different countries. Their products are very cheap compared to the others I’ve mentioned. Many items are in the $20 range or less, so if you’re on a budget, check them out. They still pay the women much more than minimum wage while maintaining low prices, which begs the question, why aren’t all brands doing this?
P.S. If you’re looking for gorgeous statement metal earrings, this is the place!

I found Dogeared a few years ago when searching for a delicate wishbone necklace for my mother. She wears it almost everyday and later gifted me this Texas necklace. Their jewelry is made in the U.S. and they are a certified B Corporation. Their necklaces are dainty, but they are certainly not flimsy. Both of our necklaces still look brand new.
