A new addition to our beloved Quill collection, these studs are sold as singles and feature an ethical, unmined stone by Diamond Foundry. Diamond Foundry stones are made right here in the USA using solar power in a carbon-neutral process, creating diamonds that are optically and chemically identical to those made in the Earth. We love a series of these running up the ear, or paired with our Stitch Studs. Sold as singles so that you can create a look that is your very own.
Diamond Foundry Diamonds
We are taking our commitment to sustainability to the next level with our switch to above ground, unmined diamonds from Diamond Foundry.
“Unmined stones” are real diamonds. They have the same optical, chemical, thermal, and physical features.” — Matthew Hall, Director, Gemological Institute of America (GIA).
Just like with mined stones, each diamond is unique, forming in its own way with the same one-of-a-kind inclusions and unique growth patterns. No two diamonds are alike.
As with traditionally mined stones, these are cut and polished by artisans and craftsmen to reveal a superior, striking diamond.
The stones are forged aboveground without the vast environmental and social impact of mining.
Because they are produced, their origin is 100% guaranteed and certain - something impossible to know with mined diamonds from Africa and Russia that pass through dozens of owners.
Like Amanda, these diamonds originate in the American West.
Large diamonds are rare. Small diamonds are plenty. Whether mined or made.
We are thrilled to be creating jewelry without the huge environmental impact that traditional diamond jewelry carries with it. We couldn’t think of anything more beautiful.
We’ve taken control and are doing things our way - that means that we’ve cut the middlemen so that we can sell directly to you at real prices, and in turn do more for the causes that we support.
Inspired by an image of a black sea urchin, Amanda took the shape of its quill - a protective or armoring element - and made feminine shapes full of movement that wrap and curve with the body.
Our mission is to empower women to #MakeWaves. To do so in a sustainable, ethical, fair way, and rally attention and funds around a cause.
How We're Made
We are a small, women-run business, designing our jewelry in our NYC studio and manufacturing locally by artisans in the city’s Diamond District. We proudly work with local family businesses and small makers to help keep our local industry alive and thriving.
“Ummm...I LOVE my package I got today!! Seriously, mouth gaping awesome! I am going to wear it all - at the same time.

You knocked it out of the park ladies. “ - Tracie L.

“My elegant Ripple ring is one of my favorite pieces. I loved picking it out in the studio with Amanda. I wore it with a beautiful rose gold ring that my mother gave me when I was 12yrs old.” - Leslie
