Sage Jewelry and gifts philosophy is simple. "Shop where your home is!" In other words shop local, shop small and reduce, reuse, recycle.Sage sells only American and Fair trade crafted items. This means we source from local artists first. We branch out to American artists and only fill in with a small bit of fair trade in clothing to keep our price point fair to you! We strive to purchase metals and gemstones used in the jewelry from American factories, recycled if possible, or imported with our same philosophy. We recycle all our packing and try to purchase based on lowest impact packing to start with. We hope this adds to the pride you feel in making a purchase from us. Thanks for "Turning over a new leaf with Sage Jewelry and gifts!"
