CIGA Design Series R Denmark Rose Watch (

We all deserve to enjoy life’s beauty when we can, and the Series R Denmark Rose watch by CIGA Design allows you to do that minute by minute. This timeless and elegant timepiece is a fusion of Scandinavian minimalist design and oriental imagery that connotes the classic beauty of a Danish rose in a unique quartz material. This edition not only showcases the company’s exquisite craftsmanship but symbolizes good fortune through its layered, petal case. The Series R Denmark Rose’s face features a simple, curved outline of the flower shape, allowing the real mother of pearl to reflect light and highlight the characteristics of the quartz. Since 2016, CIGA Design has been committed to redefining the aesthetics of peoples’ wrists with modern, mechanical art. Designer Zhang Jianmin hopes to reconstruct the spiritual expression and attitude around wristwatches by crafting pieces that are “reasonable, but unexpected” and are specifically geared to a new generation of watch-wearers.

PURPOSE Jewelry and Home Goods (

Unique, handmade products are always ideal but, when the mission behind the result is just as beautiful, that’s when you know you have something special. That’s the case with PURPOSE Jewelry as every item purchased from PURPOSE is sustainably crafted by women and girls escaping human trafficking. Fully 100 percent of proceeds go to the company’s non-profit, International Sanctuary, to provide each artisan with fair wages, education, and holistic care. And the pieces are lovely. For example, the brand’s best-selling Solstice Threader Hoops are beautifully curved in crescent shapes with shimming brass or silver-plated brass, which is hand-hammered for texture and finished for shine. For the home, the brand’s pure Ankole Trays are a new creation developed by PURPOSE Jewelry artisan and collaborator, Joseph, and the brand’s talented jewelry makers. These decorative trays showcase the natural beauty and color variation of the Ankole horns, which are an important part of food and tradition in various parts of Uganda. The animal’s horns are typically discarded as waste unless recycled into beautiful, handcrafted goods. The pure Ankole Bowl is a corresponding décor product that is one-of-a-kind and unique in its variation. Customers can choose between the regular, 7-inch bowl or the large, 8-inch bowl. PURPOSE Jewelry’s Ankole products are untreated with chemicals or sealants, making them eco-friendly and biodegradable. But as a soft material, the trays can absorb water so it’s important customers follow its care instructions to keep their item in good condition.

Moonglow Personalized Jewelry (

Light up her life with the moments that matter to them most—in jewelry form. Moonglow’s Mini Usambara in Gold, for instance, allows the wearer to feel the energetic effects of a trio of moons that beautifully represent a personal story wrapped in the luxury of gold. Part of the brand’s Golden Memories collection, this necklace features an awe-inspiring pendant that suspends three mini moon charms, customized with your own special dates, on a matching slim chain. It’s designed to highlight personal moments that matter to you, her, or whoever is wearing the stunning piece. Moonglow’s Cosmic Spiral Ring in Rhodium takes the classic version of this design to sparkly new heights with an added Swarovski crystal and a 10-millimeter personalized constellation image. The ring’s moon image is captured delicately, adding a dreamy vibe to any look, while the spiral represents the paths that life takes and how our destinies cross. Moonglow designed the adjustable Cosmic Spiral Ring for those looking for a path to their future and serves as a reminder to keep moving forward and seek new experiences—no matter how uncertain they seem. The jewelry brand got its start with the unique idea of connecting people with their most important memories, events, and moments using the moon phase of their most important date. It can be a wedding anniversary, birthday, the birth of a child, the end of a relationship, or the start of a new adventure—the possibilities are endless.

Spiritual Jewelry by Katia Designs (

Enjoy style with empowerment with Katia Designs’ handcrafted jewelry. The South Florida-based company designs spiritual jewelry meant to empower the wearer and speak to their heart. The brand’s “I Am Pretty F***ing Awesome | Eye | Original Necklace,” for example, boldly promotes self-worth in a striking fashion, which also features black and silver beads with tiger’s eye, onyx, moonstone, and bronze or silver-finished pendant. Created by owner Catherine “Katia” Rudnick and her team, each piece of jewelry features an inspiring message, as well as other earth-centric components such as gemstones, crystals, and more. But the journey to the brand’s formation was not a traditional one. Not much of a jewelry wearer herself, Katia was surprised when a medallion bracelet worn by a fellow yogi caught her eye. It was more than just the design of the bracelet that inspired her; it was the desire to recreate the same feeling for others. That same day, Katia drove to a local art school and signed up for a metal clay class and it was in this very studio that she eventually crafted the first prototypes of her medallions. Today, Katia Designs’ necklaces are a U.S.-certified, patented invention that allows customers to customize their look and wear the pieces in different ways.

The 316L stainless steel and rhodium pendant comes with a chain that is water, heat, and sweat resistant. The brand’s Compass Pendant also holds a message to the wearer, reminding people that a true leader crafts his own path. Give yourself or your loved one the gift of discovering new places and living a life of freedom with this 18-karat gold and 316L stainless steel chain and pendant. Like all of Craftd London’s products, the Compass Pendant is sweatproof, waterproof, hypoallergenic, and tarnish-resistant.
