Gold is the color of winning. Of success and achievement. And just like a medal, you can wear these pieces proudly knowing that you're helping transform the lives of the people who made them. The Gold Bar Earrings by UNA, for example, are crafted by artisans in Cambodia and are made of land mines and unexploded ordinance, turning a remnant of war into something beautiful. Other pieces, like Natalie Frigo's Claw and Rock Necklace, are made right here in New York with the help of her friendly studio cats. Yes, cats. Go follow her on Instagram to see what we're talking about. And in the meantime explore the products below to learn more about why each of these pieces has earned a gold star in our book.
