Sourcing & Sustainability
In an effort to developing more sustainable supply chain processes, we outsource our casting exclusively to companies that use ethically mined and recycled metals. Recycled gold has the same integrity and composition as newly mined gold, but with slightly less environmental impact as it did not come from new mining efforts.
Our cow horn is sourced from a small family-owned business in Chile, South America. A byproduct of the meat industry, cow horn is considered a waste material and is often burned in order to discard it, creating toxic fumes for the environment. By incorporating this beautiful material into our designs, we are able to give it a second life and, more importantly, support our craft heritage and artisans.
All of our faceted diamonds come from sources that either recycle diamonds already in circulation or are certified conflict-free. We are currently in the process of partnering with Ocean Diamonds, offering a new category of diamonds found in the ocean that require less human intervention, thereby inflicting less ecosystem disruption.
Our founder, Brigid McNellis, is a member of Ethical Metalsmiths, a leading community platform for responsible jewelry in the U.S that inspires responsible practices through education, connection, and action.
We place a high importance on utilizing all sustainable resources within our reach and are continually learning and educating ourselves on more ways in which we can do better, as we consciously evolve and strive for a more sustainable future.
We hope you will join us in our journey.
All of our jewelry is made by hand in Brooklyn, NY, except for our casting and stone setting, which we outsource to our local experts in Manhattan. With an honest love for craft, Brigid employs traditional and ancient methods that have mostly been left behind by today’s jewelry industry. These methods include wax-carving, hand-fabrication, filigree, and granulation.
MADE TO ORDER
In order to minimize waste, most of our jewelry is made to order and typically requires a 2-4 week lead time. Oftentimes, we have a small selection of items in stock that can be ready to ship within 1-2 business days. Find these in our In Stock section.
