Why it's special: We have made this necklace as a buy one, give one initiative to show support for those stepping up to the challenges of today and working toward making this world a better place. After your purchase, we will ask you to nominate someone of your choice for a free gift of the Helix Necklace. We hope that you use this gift to honor someone who is stepping up in this time of crisis to share strength and help others.
How it works: After your purchase, you will receive an email from us asking for your recipient's name, address, and a personal note, so we can gift to them on your behalf!
What it is: The pendant of this necklace was hand-sculpted by Jenny in our home during quarantine. The helix pattern inside the pendant design is a symbol of resilience. It exists in plants, celestial galaxies, weather patterns, and every living organism's DNA. It is associated with regenerative, protective qualities and has inspired artists from Leonardo DiVinci's double helix stair-well to Robert Smithson's Spiral Jetty. We hope the helix found in this piece reminds you of the growth, change, and resilience surrounding and within you.
Good to know:
Hand-Selected Freshwater Pearls
Pearls are an easy choice for our carefully curated material list because the process for farming pearls has very low environmental impact and often improves the waters in villages where they are farmed.
All of our jewelry is made with 100% recycled sterling silver or yellow bronze as certified by Scientific Global Services and ethically mined 23.5-karat gold premium plating and 14k gold-fill.
Our lab-grown diamonds match the same chemical, optical, and physical properties as mined diamonds. Cultured diamonds are inherently conflict-free and have significantly less negative environmental impact than mined diamonds.
Made in the USA
All of our jewelry is designed in Santa Monica, California by Jenny and Lily Monbouquette and handcrafted by master jewelers in Rhode Island and California. From the outset we wanted all of our pieces manufactured in the USA. This way we get to enjoy real relationships with the people making our jewelry and know, first hand, they are treated fairly and well compensated for their efforts.
Plastic-free, Reusable, and Recycled Packaging
All of our packaging is plastic free and shipped in re-used boxes. Every purchase sits safely inside our branded book-box, perfect for sitting on your bookshelf as well as a luxury leather pouch, which is great as a little travel case for your jewelry!
Carbon Neutral Shipping
We have invested in a new sustainability initiative to offset the environmental impact of shipping. The platform we are using will calculate the total emissions generated by our shipped orders and this number will become our monthly offset cost. These payments will go toward forest protection initiatives, spearheaded by Pachama. We will be able to measure our impact and how our offset investment is helping the environment and, of course, share this with you!
