Personalization - it means wearing jewelry as a symbol of your values - of the meanings and milestones that go deeper than words. We believe personalization is the way for the future. This final milestone is just the start.
From form to function our designs are human-centered. Thoughtfully created to complement your style…not define it. Last year we launched Design Studio, putting the role of designer in your hands. Our fifth and final #milestone is Personalization - but it's just the beginning... 🤫
Traditionally, luxury is a symbol of status but we think that can feel exclusive and outdated so we’re taking a different approach. We asked ourselves: what if modern luxury was empowering? What if it was a symbol for our values? We believe that modern luxury is a personal statement you're making to the world. What does modern luxury mean to you?
Our Round Tetrad Band features an open back gallery, allowing light to pour in, reflecting a brilliant shine. Part of our Modern Luxury collection (formerly Black Label) designed to think differently about luxury.
Ready to take on Monday with our Baguette Diamond Hoops. 🙌✨
Modern luxury means you’re wearing your values - everyday.
Like a mirror, each diamond's vertical setting and large facets capture light at every angle, insisting you pause for a moment of mindful reflection.

“Black Label [now Modern Luxury] is a natural progression that stemmed from my own growth—from timid and shy to confident and experienced. For me, it’s an opportunity to start a new conversation. One that speaks to who I am - an entrepreneur and as a woman.” - Vanessa Stofenmacher, founder & creative director
In 2017, we announced Black Label, a collection of diamond fine jewelry created with the intention of redefining luxury through our passion for sustainable change. The diamonds got larger (thanks to @diamondfoundry) and the stakes a little higher but our values remained the same. 2 years later, we call this collection...Modern Luxury.
A touch of sparkle. Our Tiny Diamond Bracelet creates flickers of light for perfect shine every time.

Today, we celebrate independence and equality for all - values that inspire us as individuals and as a team dedicated to democratizing modern fine jewelry.
Vanessa Stofenmacher, our founder & creative director, didn’t like what she saw behind the curtain of the exclusive diamond industry. By partnering with @diamondfoundry she found an “opportunity to create actual change.”

Our home try-on program allows you to choose 3 designs to meet IRL. We’ll send you sample versions so you can preview the size, shape and design to make sure it’s just right.
In 2017, we launched VOW (Vrai & Oro Wedding) with the intention of redefining engagement from the ground up. We set out to question the industry traditions from the ring to the diamond to the experience.  We created a home try-on experience aimed at making the engagement ring process feel more inclusive and joyful. We focused on designing rings that were both beautiful and functional for everyday wear and we dedicated ourselves to learning everything we could about sustainably grown diamonds. #milestones

In 2014, we launched with 10 essential designs and a mission to change an industry long considered traditional and exclusive. We made every decision from our designs to our materials to our operations, with intention and we chose to partner with local manufacturers to create sustainable products from start to finish. With no middlemen mark-ups and a belief in people over profits, we started our journey towards bringing new meaning to fine jewelry. #milestones
"It was a gift to myself, to mark reaching a goal I set. I absolutely love it! It reminds me every day that my commitment to myself is as important as a wedding ring. I'm considering adding another one in either yellow or white gold for the next major goal I achieve." Jennifer H. on our Baguette Diamond Ring
