Our Story

Our Journey


“How do we find a ring that reflects our values?”


We were looking for an emblem of our love. Instead, we found environmentally destructive mining practices, slave labor, bloody supply chains…glimmering diamonds holding murky, scary secrets. As a newly engaged couple deeply passionate about each other and the inherent rights of all people and the Earth itself, we were jarred by the ugly truth behind elegant jewelry.




OUR BEGINNINGS


Not wanting to perpetuate these long-standing industry horrors, we began collecting rings from our families with the intention of upcycling existing stones. As we amassed these rings, we also collected stories. We realized that jewelry represents a weaving of meaning and connection throughout generations – totems and icons of the love between spouses, parents, children. Our marriage is a union, and this union motivated us to become agents of change.

This change now has a name. We launched Chapter Six in 2020. The looming threat of climate change has transitioned from an abstract theory to a dangerous truth. As global citizens, we’ve often felt lost and hopeless about our own personal ability to make a change for the better. Through Chapter Six jewelry we have created a company that actively practices supply chain transparency and ethical consumption. Too often modern businesses are at odds with modern activism.

With Chapter Six, we have created a company that sacrifices neither and retains the integral spirit of both. Jewelry is a medium that highlights the beauty in the world. Its appeal is physical and emotional, deeply symbolic and visually satisfying. It reminds us not only of our collective dependency on the planet and it’s shining resources (like gold and precious gems), but of commitments, special moments, and loving ourselves.






OUR DESIGNS

We want our designs to begin with the consumer but not to end there. Our pieces are a conversation starter around the hard issues that we are all facing today. So, with every ‘I love your jewelry,’ there is an emphasis behind explaining the choice to support a sustainable brand with your purchase. At the same time, we want our brand to push the jewelry industry forward.



OUR CHOICES

Saying NO to new mining, and instead, YES to recycling precious metals and gemstones already in circulation.

As we continue to research and implement better practices, transparency with our consumers is key. Because giving back is at the core of our beliefs, we donate 10% of our revenue from every collection to our favorite conservation and humanitarian non-profit organizations.

Profit without purpose is pointless.

We are here to be the change.

With gratitude,

Gemma and Ahmet
