We want your love for nature to be reflected in the jewelry you wear, so we're always looking for ways to make our unique jewelry more sustainable and use materials from ethical sources. As we designed new engagement rings for the June 2022 launch, we researched the best suppliers for recycled, eco-friendly, and conflict-free diamonds, as well as alternative stones that are just as visually stunning. Read more about each stone below to decide which one fits your dream ring.
Recycled diamonds are stones that already exist in the supply chain that are restored to ensure that they are the same quality as a brand new diamond. Because they bypass the mining process, they are a particularly eco-friendly option.
Our conflict free diamonds are recently mined stones. To ensure that they are ethically sourced, our diamond supplier follows the guidelines of the Kimberley process, is in compliance with the United Nations resolutions, and guarantees that the diamonds are conflict free.
Lab grown diamonds are real diamonds that were grown under specific conditions in a lab. They are generally excellent in quality, but are much more affordable than mined stones. That said, it is important to note that they will not appreciate value over time in the same way that mined stones will.
Diamonds are the hardest gemstone, and are ranked at a 10 on the Mohs hardness scale. This makes them perfect for everyday wear.
Moissanite might look like diamond, but it is a completely different gemstone! Originally found in meteors, the natural supply is extremely limited, and almost all moissanite on the market is lab grown. Like lab grown diamonds, moissanite will not appreciate value over time. That said, moissanite is more affordable than diamond options, and has more fire (the rapidly changing flashes of color seen in some gems) than diamond. They are a 9.5 on the Mohs scale, and are suitable for everyday wear.
Our Sapphires are mined right here in the United States in Montana. Our supplier is a Gold Level Green America Certified Business, which is an independent certification given to businesses that are environmentally responsible and socially equitable, among other attributes. Each sapphire is heat treated following industry standards to bring out the best color possible from each stone, making them a great option if you’re looking for something blue. They are a 9 on the Mohs scale, and are suitable for everyday wear.

Superior Gales Pendant
I love the pendant so much! The details are perfect.
I love the prints on all of these. I have bought many for Christmas gifts, nieces in H.S. and MIL. They like them all, very beautiful prints
Walking through the woods when it's "raining" autumn is one of my favorite things to do and this pendant captures that experience beautifully!! Thank you!!
This pendant is beautiful. It inspires so many wonderful memories of the loons on our lake. It is a true keepsake!
Love my pendant!
The Woodland Conifer pendant in silver is my very favorite necklace. It’s a perfect size, goes with anything I wear (I actually never take it off) and it reflects my love of the northwoods. I couldn’t be happier with my purchase.
I purchased this pendant as a gift for an NMU alumni as a reminder of their time at NMU, in Marquette near our beautiful Lake Superior! The stunning landscape on this pendant is sure to provide lifetime memories of treasured times in Marquette!
Thank you for your gifts and talents you create in your amazing pieces.
