01 Feb Valentines For The Lover
My birthday is very close to Valentine’s Day so every year I end up celebrating with a 2 in 1 type of party or dinner with my girlfriends or boyfriend – depending on my current situation at the time. This year I am super excited to celebrate this hybrid day with Igor, my boyfriend of 2ish years.
I kind of know what I like when it comes to jewelry, and I don’t like wearing anything that is very cutesy or frilly or too romantic. That being said, I do love subtle and small heart details and emblems.
That is why I am super happy to promote and recommend the ethical jewelry brand Charmed By A Cause. Their Valentine’s Day XOLove pendant and ring in particular are just the right size: dainty without being super girly.
Love At First Sight
I stumbled upon the brand Charmed By A Cause when I was invited to showcase Goodbern and a few sustainable jewelry lines for a PAUSE fashion pop up at Querencia Studio last November. Their designs are simple and classic but with a perfect dose of originality. Regan Caton and Betsy Milliken, the cofounders, are industry veterans who first-hand witnessed the pollution and other negative effects caused by the jewelry industry. In an effort to be part of a the solution and to be leaders in improving industry standards, they co-founded Charmed By A Cause.
Charmed By A Cause not only has top of the line designs for different tastes and aesthetics, but also are a strong voice for the sustainability movement in the jewelry industry. The jewelry is made out of 100% recycled gold and silver along with ethically sourced or lab grown diamonds and semi-precious stones. The designers are dedicated to ethical and conscientious manufacturing processes.
