"My personal credo, 'ART. SCULPTURE. BEAUTY.' has become the baseline for how we design and manufacture jewelry at IPPOLITA. My deep love of the raw materials from which beautiful adornments are crafted leads organically to a great regard for the natural resources from which they derive. Our main material is, of course, gold. 100% of our gold comes from recycled sources, and its quality is identical to mined gold. In keeping with our beliefs, we choose to marry our love of beauty with respect for Mother Nature. The world contains a finite amount of metals and minerals, and we are committed to using only previously refined gold."
