Whether it’s a tropical-wood serving plate or a gold bangle, every SURevolution piece has a rich cultural story behind it. Founded by Marcella Echavarria and Dina Rothstein, Colombian natives with backgrounds in magazines and design, the NYC-based company works with artisans around the world to bring handcrafted ceramics, tableware, pillows, bags, and jewelry to the luxury market. The wares have appeared on the pages of fashion magazines like <i>Vogue</i> and <i>Harper’s Bazaar</i>, and sales help benefit developing communities in countries such as Bolivia and India.
SURevolution casts the natural world in precious metals like these embossed leaf earrings and cuffs, while the Alex & Ani collection gives recycled materials new life in charm rings, hoop earrings and stacked bracelets. Check out the chunky bracelets made from tagua, an eco-friendly alternative to ivory. The enamel-like carvings come from trees and exemplify jewelry’s eco-conscious move towards sustainability.
Now is the time to indulge in those final finishing pieces that otherwise seemed out of reach. Check out the edgy selection from Dannijo, full of twisted, mixed-metal jewelry. Or go for the coiled, braided necklaces by Sur Evolution that convey a subtle but impactful style statement. Another group to take notice of are the geometric pieces from Kara Ross, combining gold-toned hexagons with bright, inlaid stingray leather.
From understated to bold and bright, this selection of baubles is full of unique, statement-making pieces. Look to DANNIJO for a tough-girl edge in the leather wrap bracelet with plated brass studs. See Sur Evolution for whimsical earrings that range in shape from delicate gold-plated leaves to textured pieces of miniature driftwood. And for big jewelry with big impact, check out Rachel Leigh’s boisterous multi-chain necklaces, from plain gold to rhinestone clusters.
There's no reason a fantastic gift can't be great for the environment as well. In honor of Earth Day, we've rounded up a great selection of nature-friendly picks for all the people on your list—whether they're eco-minded themselves, or you'd just like to nudge them in the right direction.
