Truss and Ore offers modern, customizable fine jewelry handcrafted with great care. As a one-woman business operation, it’s very important to me that my business values align with my personal values and ethical practices are at the forefront of everything I create. I use Fairmined 18k gold and source traceable, responsibly mined and cut gemstones. I favor color gemstones and see them as a beautiful alternative to diamonds. (80-90% of color gemstones are mined by artisanal miners and I see supporting responsible artisanal mining as a way to contribute to reversing the damage caused by the colonialist beginnings of the jewelry industry). However, we can work with heirloom or vintage diamonds as well. Additionally, I now also offer a selection of vintage and pre-loved pieces through the Truss and Ore Curated collection.
I’m continuously working to bring responsible jewelry making practices to the forefront in the jewelry industry and am always happy to discuss my practices with clients as well – please feel free to ask any questions you may have! Let’s work together to create your dream piece of jewelry for your special day and beyond!
