A 3-Phase Approach
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 partner with the leading maker of lab-grown genuine diamonds, which are conflict-free and just as lustrous.
Loose, natural diamonds that prove imperfections are beautiful – choose from 500+ to create your dream piece!
This lab-grown alternative
is more sustainable, sparkly & cost-effective than mined diamonds.
Naturally faceted & unique to NY, our magnificently raw Herkimer quartz is ethically mined just for us.
Upcycling is the most sustainable. We'd be honored to re-set your pre-loved gems into a bespoke piece!
