What everyday jewelry do you wear? I’m drawn to pieces that are handmade, timeless, and sustainable. So, I’ve been really loving GLDN‘s personalized, understated jewelry.
GLDN began on a kitchen floor when Chrissy Lavdovsky, a single mom in the Seattle area, decided to design personal jewelry and sell pieces on Etsy. Now, seven years later, GLDN employs more than 85 people and has three workspaces. “I want our shops to stay small, so everyone can interact as individuals,” she says. Every piece of jewelry still meets the three GLDN rules: make it by hand, make it personal, make a difference.
Using jewelry to tell your story is the heart of GLDN. You can personalize pieces with materials, finishes, and inscriptions — like this beautiful necklace.
We love their Flora Collection (you can choose your favorite flower), Everyday Essentials (that pearl!), and Personalized Collection, including name rings and initial necklaces.
But I’m especially taken by their Heirloom pieces. Almost all styles are available in solid gold and are sustainably produced in GLDN’s low-waste production process. How gorgeous are these cuties?
Today, GLDN is giving one lucky reader a $500 gift card. To enter, please visit GLDN’s online shop and leave a comment below telling us what you’d love from their Heirloom collection. A winner will be chosen tomorrow at random. Good luck, and thank you so much!
