Shop Responsibly

At Ken & Dana Design, we maintain a holistic approach to our business to ensure that each piece is environmentally friendly, socially responsible, and incredibly unique.

Our Commitment to Ethical Jewerly

While the current system of diamond processing and metal sourcing is not perfect, we are fully committed to adhering to best practices to create jewelry in the most ethical manner possible, while supporting charities and organizations that promote positive changes.

  • Local Production

    In keeping with our ethical commitment, all of our jewelry is responsibly handcrafted in NYC. We do not engage in overseas production and everyone involved in our supply chain earns a generous living wage.

  • Recycled Metals

    We use recycled metals in all of our jewelry. In doing so, we help to decrease the global demand for newly mined gold and the social/environmental destruction that comes with it.

  • Quality Materials

    We guarantee eco-friendly silver, platinum, palladium and gold of the highest quality. These metals are not compromised and allow Ken and Dana Design to remain strong in its commitment to environmental responsibility.

  • Ethical Diamonds

    All of our natural diamond suppliers are Kimberley Process compliant, which is a certification system that prohibits the trading of diamonds from conflict regions. We also offer Canadian origin diamonds, and lab-grown diamonds.

Giving Back

Ken & Dana Design donates a portion of proceeds to Earthworks and Cool Effect.

Earthworks is an advocacy group dedicated to protecting communities and the environment from the adverse impacts of mineral and energy development while promoting sustainable solutions. They stand for clean air, water and land, healthy communities, and corporate accountability.

Cool Effect is a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting climate change by promoting and supporting carbon reducing projects around the world.

Over the years, we have also helped raise thousands of dollars for the Brady Campaign, Red Cross, and the Harlem Children’s Zone.

It’s the same personal experience whether you are a local visiting our shop, or partner with us using some other avenue like email or video conferencing.
