The brand is a fave of trendsetters like Erykah Badu and is filled with African inspired yellow gold, white gold, pink gold and silver pieces. Take a look at the engagement rings and wedding bands and notice the incorporation of the ankh throughout the collections. Asian and Native American cultures are often used as inspiration for these custom pieces as well.

And oh yeah, Happy Monday!
