Spotlight on Aurate: Ethical and Sustainable Fine Jewelry

*I was gifted jewelry by Aurate New York to give away and feature in this post. 

Aurate New York is one of my favorite jewelry brands so I’m excited to share more about them AND give away one of their gorgeous pieces! (Giveaway has ended)

Aurate Sustainable Fine Jewelry Brand

Ethical and Sustainable Fine Jewelry

Aurate New York is a fine jewelry brand based out of New York that uses ethically sourced and sustainable materials in their handmade pieces. Not only that, but they are reasonably and transparently priced! I also love Aurate because their pieces are absolutely gorgeous! The designs are minimalistic and feminine and draw inspiration from New York City.


Aurate only use 100% recycled gold which is a more sustainable option because it can be endlessly reused and recycled without losing quality. Their diamonds and gems are ethically sourced and tracked to make sure working conditions are acceptable and workers are paid a fair wage. Their pearls are sustainably farmed and carefully harvested from family-run farms who give back to their local communities.

Aurate goes above and beyond when it comes to the quality of their materials. For example, their gold vermeil pieces are coated with 2.5 microns of 14K gold (instead of industry standard of 1.5 microns and 10K gold). They handpick and lab test their diamonds to get the best cut, color, and at least SI quality clarity. Their larger pearls are harvested from the South Sea with the highest quality AAA-grade. And the smaller pearls are harvested straight from Japan! Then the seventh generation craftsmen back in New York hand make the gorgeous pieces!


Aurate prides itself on fair and transparent pricing. Since all of their pieces are made in NYC they don’t have to markup the price due to import taxes or middlemen. Plus, their pieces are produced on a made-to-order basis so there aren’t added inventory costs.

You’ll find prices as low as $50 for pieces like the 14k solid gold Stackable Ring and Gold Ball StudsThey also sell solid gold diamond pieces which are pricier but still more reasonably priced than traditional jewelry stores.
