Sustainability

OUR ETHOS

AMJ sees sustainability as a holistic and authentic strategy woven into the core of the brand – a continuous journey of learning and celebrating the collective beauty of what we do and who we are, not shaming or excluding ourselves or others. 

By communicating this, it’s not, “look at what we do, now give us a pat on the back,” but rather providing transparency and positive impact to all people & planetary beings involved.

A 3-Phase Approach

OUR PEOPLE

social sustainability

OUR COMMUNITY

systemic sustainability

OUR PLANET

environmental sustainability

empowering our people 

and all people through:

  • fair wages & fair trade

  • diverse & inclusive hiring practices

  • creative development opportunities

creating positive impact 

outside AMJ's four walls by: 

  • donating $50 from every custom ring

  • partnering with ethical associations 

  • offering monthly public workshops

ensuring our supply chain 

does no harm by choosing: 

  • non-toxic studio practices

  • ethical gems & recycled or fair-mined gold

  • local production on Jeweler's Row

LOVINGLY & LOCALLY PRODUCED

100% of our production happens inside a one-mile radius within our beloved Center City Philadelphia neighborhood. This vastly reduces the carbon footprint of our supply chain. 


Each piece starts at our Walnut Street studio, where we hand-select a gemstone, draw a sketch, then bring it to life as a carved wax or digital 3D model.


Then, it's cast in recycled metal on Jeweler's Row, where we've proudly been working with the same family-owned businesses for over a decade. Recently certified in fair-mined gold, you can now request this option when your piece is made-to-order. 


Back at the studio, each piece is carefully finished by our small team of expert jewelers, then sold right next door at Ritual Shoppe, our brick & mortar store.

SUSTAINABLY PACKAGED & SHIPPED

Although our jewels are made to last a lifetime, we're happy to announce that our new packaging & shipping materials have already, 'been there, done that.'


All our packaging – from jewelry boxes, protective sateen baggies, and shopping bags to business cards, paper products, and shipping materials – are made from 90-100% post-consumer recycled fiber. 


We hope they enjoy their lavish new life housing your AMJ bling!


Our Goal: to be Transparent Like a Diamond

We proudly offer an abundance of ethical, earth-friendly options for every style and budget.
