Iron Oxide is a woman-owned and run brand dedicated to producing beautiful jewelry pieces made with ethically sourced gemstones. All their gemstones are either lab-grown or ethically sourced. Ethically sourced gemstones come from suppliers who pay their miners living wages and provide proper safety gear while cutting and grinding gemstones. Amy Fox, owner of Iron Oxide, hand carves each wax model. The model is then cast into a mold locally in Portland, Oregon using recycled metals. Fox then carefully sets each stone and crystal into the cast by hand. With Iron Oxide's ethical jewelry, you're receiving a stunningly handcrafted piece thoughtfully made to last a lifetime. Each order arrives in recyclable and minimal packaging to be mindful of plastic use and its impact on our planet.
