I love to design timeless jewelry that is also made ethically and sustainably, here in the US, by women for women. I have worked hand-in-hand with a woman-owned manufacturer in Los Angeles for over 15 years. I must admit, I have looked elsewhere. I found several manufactures in India that claimed they also made sustainable jewelry. However, the quality never compared to Silva’s, my LA co-designer and manufacturer.
We buy our metal from recycling plants in Los Angeles. We do not use any acid or chemicals to wash, clean or polish any Laura Elizabeth jewelry. In fact, we use household products! Many other manufacturers use cyanide and other chemicals that hurt the workers who are making the jewelry you enjoy. We use no hazardous chemicals from A-Z
