Our Mission: Ethics Meets Design

astrid, constance, kent, monaco handmade wedding rings - dana walden bridal

We're so glad you're here. If you're still on the fence about engaging us for your project, we've assembled a few points about our mission and ethics below. In addition to creating "timeless yet distinctive" one-of-a-kind designs, we are committed to being accountable for every component of your handmade piece. Read on.

Recycled + Conflict Free

In keeping with our ethical commitment, 100% of our jewelry is responsibly and ethically handcrafted in NYC. We do not engage in overseas production and everyone involved in our supply chain earns a generous living wage. All of our diamond suppliers are Kimberley Process compliant, which is a certification system that prohibits the trading of diamonds from war-torn regions. In addition, we use recycled gold and platinum from melted down, already existing supplies to the furthest extent possible. By using recycled metal we help to decrease the global demand for newly mined gold and the social/environmental destruction that comes with it. Our goal is to create a meaningful, well-designed, and traceable piece that you can truly feel good about wearing every single day.

Supporting Charities

Over the years we have helped raise thousands of dollars for the Brady Campaign, the Obama 2008 Presidential Campaign, Red Cross (Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami relief, Haitian relief, and Gulf Coast clean-up efforts), and Harlem Children’s Zone. We continue to donate regularly to charities all over the world. If you'd like to hear about our latest affiliations and engagements, email us at info@danawaldenbridal.com

Building a Better Future

The current system of diamond processing and metal sourcing is not perfect. However, we are committed to creating jewelry in the most ethical manner possible, while supporting charities and organizations that promote positive changes, prevent abuses, and protect the environment. It is our policy to be fully transparent and forthcoming with regard to every part of our supply chain. If you have any questions, please send an e-mail to us info@danawaldenbridal.com and we will answer any questions you may have.
