Made Locally By Dorothée Rosen in Nova Scotia, Canada
Environmental sustainability and ethical sourcing are priorities. My suppliers are committed to ethical sourcing, and strong environmental and labor practices. Most of the precious metals I use are recycled, and all diamonds are Canadian-mined.

The close observer will discover, however, that these individually hand-fabricated elements are in fact each molded with my own hands, which is evident in them carrying fingerprints: proof of the hand of the maker.
